Maja Stark won six of the holes, while Yu Liu closed the gap by taking home four.
Stark pointed to the patience as extra successful.
– I didn’t get too nervous when she won a hole. I guess I had a bit of an edge because she didn’t start that well. Not me either, but I think I was up three in the first four, so it gave me a little protection so I could swing a little more freely, says the Swede after the match.
Maja Stark has now won the two opening matches. The sixteen group winners advance to this weekend’s knockout matches.
– I can still miss, someone can pass me, you might end up in the qualifiers. So I’ll just try to do what I’ve been doing, because it’s obviously been working for the last two days.
Anna Nordqvist was another of the eleven players who won their second match in a row. It became quite dramatic, when the Swede lost a lead with four under to only “one up” against the American Lauren Coughlin.
Linn Grant defeated Finland’s Matilda Castren after battling a significant disadvantage.
– I just had the attitude that it is a difficult golf course, so anything can happen on any hole. You just have to keep hitting the fairways and try to hit those greens. Often you win a hole in par because they are so difficult, she says according to AP.
Linnea Ström and Frida Kinhult, however, lost their matches against South Korean opposition in the form of An Narin and Ryu Hae-Ran.
