Lydia Ko is now in third place late in the second round of the Kingsmill Championship on the LPGA Tour.

The Kiwi posted a second successive four-under (67) in Virginia to move to eight-under through two rounds, to be outright third and four shots back of the leader, Lexi Thompson. 

Ko was composed and calm after two very solid rounds as she looks to continue this form into the weekend.

"It was a pretty steady round, the front nine I gave myself a lot of looks for birdies and a lot of them slipped by. But I feel like I'm putting good strokes on it, and that's all I can do," said Ko.

"I got a few lucky bounces. The birdie on my first hole, the 10th, I got a really good kick and it ended up being a tap-in birdie. It's always nice when the luck is there and you're able to give yourself many looks for birdies. Playing well in the real front nine was good to give me confidence going into the weekend."

Overall, Ko felt good about where her game is heading.

"I think I was hitting it a little bit better, and I hit a few more greens in regulation and that automatically gives you more birdie opportunities," she added.

"It's been a steady first two days. I like where I am. I wish I could be a little bit better but you can say that with any round. There's a lot of golf to be played, but all I've got to do is focus on my game and be excited for the weekend."
