Boutier holds the second-round lead for the second time in her LPGA career and has now opened with two straight rounds in the 60s four times in twenty four starts this season.

“I think I just have to keep doing what I’ve been doing. My long game has been really solid the past two days, so I hope I can keep it up for the next two. We’ll see how the conditions also change on the course. I feel like it’s playing a little bit drier today; definitely more windy,” said Boutier.

Behind her at 10-under, Mexico’s Gaby Lopez and Minjee Lee of Australia shot 68s for their share of second place alongside American Mina Harigae (69).

“Honestly, today my goal was just to hang in there, try to hit it somewhat close and put really good rolls on it,” said Harigae. “I’m happy with the way that my back nine ended up.”

First round leader Jeongeun Lee6 shot 71 and moved down into a share of fifth place at 9-under alongside fellow South Korean Eun-Hee Ji (68) , England’s Georgia Hall (68) and World Number 1 Nelly Korda (69).

“I think I can make more putts and I think my iron shots have been loose sometimes on a couple holes here and there,” said Korda. “You’re not going to hit every shot great, so I think I’ve handled it pretty well. Hopefully I can give myself some better looks at birdies going into the weekend.”
