Ireland’s Stephenie Meadow finds herself on top of the leaderboard at the fourth annual Danielle Downey Credit Union Classic at Brook-Lea Country Club as she heads into the weekend, with four players tied for the lead at 7-under par overall. 

 

Meadow is tied with Symetra Tour rookie Eun Jeong Seong (Yongin, Republic of Korea), 18-hole leader Csicsi Rozsa (Budapest, Hungary) and Natalie Sheary (New Britain, Connecticut) as she looks to further cement her position on the Tour and chase an LPGA Card for next season.

Meadow started the day only one shot off the lead and she made that up with a 1-under par second round. Every time the former four-time First Team All-American seemed to get in trouble, she immediately bounced back and, already a winner on the Symetra Tour this season at the IOA Championship presented by Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, Meadow finished the day with three birdies, four bogeys and an eagle. 

“It was a little more windy and honestly, my ball striking just wasn’t quite as good,” Meadow said. “I missed some fairways and hitting it out of the rough, combined with the wind, is a little tricky. I had similar rounds like this recently and then ended up two- or three-over. To keep it under par today was great and hopefully I can have another round like I did yesterday at some point during the weekend.”

Leona and Lisa Maguire were also competing with both unfortunately missing the cut.  Leona was well placed after an opening 71 but a second round 76 put paid to her chances while Lisa returned a 75 and needed a big second day to qualify but came in with a 78.

A total of 70 players made the cut of 1-over par.
