Australia’s Karrie Webb fired a second round one under par 71 in tougher conditions thanks to two eagles and a lot of grit and determination. Webb, in the hunt for her sixth major championship trails leaders Carin Koch and Candie Kung by a shot as Kung makes her way through the turn. Americans Beth Bauer and Tina Barret share second spot with Webb on seven under par with veteran Italian Federica Dassu currently on six under par after four holes of day two. Here’s what Karrie had to say:

Hi Karrie – How did things go out there for you today? Let’s see. Well, I think it looks like the morning rounds are definitely going to get the toughest with the weather today. It was extremely cold this morning and extremely windy, especially when we got out right on those ocean holes there. And the holes 4 through 11 were probably the toughest stretch of holes I have ever played, I think, as far as what the weather did to make those holes extremely tough. So I am just happy to get in at 1-under. I feel pretty lucky to do that. Obviously the two eagles I made in my round helped that out a lot.
