A series of birdies over the last nine have saved Lydia’s hopes of challenging her to the women’s British Open.

A serious start to the second round at Carnosti left the Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist in danger of losing the cut.

She made three boogies and a birdie on the front nine and then sat outside the kit on the two unders.

On one occasion, a 24-year-old girl was forced to play a creative bunker shot to save her knees.

But three birdies between holes 11 and 14 put him back on track.

Finished second in an under for a tournament, six shots at speed after carding an under 71.

She managed to avoid the cut with two shots.

Koo improved 10 places on the leaderboard to stay at 31st.
