Su Oh has not enjoyed the best of seasons on the LPGA Tour but her most recent form suggests things are getting better for the Victorian and today that improvement continued when finding herself in a share of 4th place and four shots from the leader and former world number one, Jin Young Ko.

Oh added a second round of 71 but a closing nine of 33 assisted her into a contending position heading into the weekend.

Oh was battling when she reached the turn but three birdies, an eagle and a double bogey saw her move back into calculations for the final 36 holes.

Oh expressed her disappointment in a season which has seen her unable to get back to Australia as often as she normally would.

“I mean, it’s been very hard,” said Oh. “I think it’s just the fact that we can’t go home; my family can’t come out of Australia. I just had a flight and it’s just been cancelled.

“Yeah, it’s just very frustrating. I’m sure people back in Melbourne and Sydney right now are even more frustrated. They’ve been in lockdown, like all my friends.

“I just hope we can get our crap together.”

Katherine Kirk is 41st and former winner of the event albeit on another venue, Hannah Green, just made the cut in 70th place despite a quadruple bogey at her second hole today.

Gabi Ruffels and Sarah Jane Smith both missed the cut.
