Aditi closes in on leader Pace

India's Aditi Ashok fired a superb six-under 66 to stay hot on the heels of leader Lee-Anne Pace of South Africa after the second round of the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open here on Thursday.

The 36-year-old Lee-Anne also shot a second sizzling 66 to keep a narrow one-shot lead over Aditi. The South African was 12-under-par, while Aditi was 11-under after another day of low scoring at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.

Pace felt that the light sea breeze complemented the perfect golfing conditions, with sunny skies and temperatures in the low 30s.

Aditi, who remains bogey-free after 36 holes, took advantage of favourable conditions.

The 19-year-old from Bengaluru, who won two titles in her first year as a professional last year, will defend her crown at next week's Hero Women's Indian Open.
