Stephanie Meadow and Leona Maguire are tied for 11th place at the midpoint point of the women's golf at the Olympics.

Both Irish players are four-under-par after their second rounds in Tokyo. Meadow surged up the leaderboard with a five-under round of 66, which included birdies on four of the last five holes.

In-form Maguire also moved to four-under by signing for a round of 67, finishing with a birdie on the last.

“I just kind of managed it a bit better today I think,” Meadow said after her round. “I still didn’t have my best stuff but I gave myself a little bit more room on left pins and didn’t short side myself so that was really the key and is always part of shooting under par.

“I guess I hope I can start like that tomorrow. There’s a lot of wedges on the last few, they’re easy-ish holes and they moved the tee on 18 up today so all of those things contribute but I finally got comfortable, hit good shots and started to see it a bit better.”

World number one Nelly Korda holds a four-shot lead at 13-under-par, despite having a double-bogey on the last hole of her round.
