Holzhausern, Sept 10 (Golf news) India's Tvesa Malik fired a superb bogey-free six-under 66 which more than made up for her listless opening round of 73 in the VP Bank Swiss Ladies Open here.

At 5-under 137, she was 17th when she finished the second round but there were a lot of players yet to finish.

German Sandra Gal added a brilliant bogey free nine-under 63 after her first round 67 to zoom to 14-under and a three-shot lead.

She was followed by local Swiss star, Kim Metraux, who had a 66 in the first round and was five-under through nine holes in the second for a total of 11-under with nine holes to go.
