This is Aditi’s first start in 2022 and a good finish here will help her to build a fine season on the LPGA.

Meanwhile, Nishtha Madan, making her LPGA debut, exited early with rounds of 77-80.

Ko had four birdies for a two-under 70 in the second round, while Kang had five birdies against one bogey.

Two players are four shots behind Kang and Ko at -7, including Jodi Ewart Shadoff (69), who will round out Saturday’s final grouping off No. 1 tee.

The other is Yuka Saso (70), the 2021 US Women’s Open champion. Saso has not missed a cut on Tour since accepting LPGA Tour Membership after that victory.

A group of five individuals, including Aditi share the fifth spot at six-under overall. As many as 74 players made the cut at one-over.
