Russian Maria Balikoeva added a second round of 69 to her opening 68 to tie for the lead with first round leader Trish Johnson after the second morning at the Tenerife Open de España Femenino at Golf Costa Adeje.

Balikoeva completed her round to end on seven-under-par as Johnson began from the 20th hole.

Conditions are hot and breezy for the second round and similar to Thursday afternoon, so those who played this morning, including Scotland’s Kylie Walker who had a 71 for a halfway total of six-under, played in the trickier side of the draw.
