FRESH FROM REPRESENTING Ireland at the Olympics, Stephanie Meadow has rediscovered her best form to lie in a tie for second at the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open.

The 24-year-old followed up Thursday’s opening round of 66 with a three-under par 69 yesterday to sit three shots off the lead at the halfway stage.

Meadow, ranked 419 in the world, has endured a difficult year but has produced back-to-back rounds in Calgary to remain in the hunt for her first professional win.

The County Antrim golfer carded six birdies on Friday but three consecutive bogeys on 9, 10 and 11 means she surrendered her overnight lead and goes into the weekend with ground to make up on leader Ariya Jutanugarn.

In the six LPGA events she’s played in 2016, Meadow has missed four cuts so this is very much a welcome, and much needed, return to form and hopefully the spark her career needed to reignite.

Her previous best finish was third on her professional debut at the US Open back in 2014.

Jutanugarn tops the leaderboard on 12-under par with In Gee Chun and Meadow four shots further behind.
