Leona Maguire is seven shots off the lead at the Ladies Scottish Open after carding a second round 72.

The Cavan native matched her score from the opening round which leaves her on two over from the first two days of action.


The 25-year-old birdied the fifth and seventh holes but bogeys on the second, 11th and 15th saw her drop a shot, having also bogeyed two of those three holes on Thursday.

However, Maguire is three shots inside the projected cut mark which stands at five over.

Azahara Munoz and Stacy Lewis share the lead on five under, one shot clear of the United States' Jennifer Song.

Spain's Munoz carded a 69, while Lewis gained ground atop the leaderboard with a 66.

Germany's Olivia Cowan and USA's Amy Olson are in a tie for fourth, one shot behind Song.

Former world number one Lewis said she had overcome exhaustion and aching feet prior to the second round.

"It was about 8.30pm when they blew the horn last night and we had to walk all the way in (from the 15th), and then the keypad system wouldn't work to get in the parking garage," said Lewis.

"So we were walking in the hotel a little before 10.00pm, and then I got in the room, ordered food really fast, FaceTimed Chesnee (her 22-month-old daughter) and took a shower. I think I was in bed by 10.45pm.

"And then we had to leave at 5.30 this morning to get back out for the 8am restart. We had about 45 minutes between rounds.

"Everybody's feet are hurting. We were all kind of rubbing our backs at the end. It was definitely an adventure the last two days."
