YARRALUMLA, Australia — Casey Danielson will play on the weekend at a Ladies European Tour event for the first time at the ActewAGL Canberra Classic and the Osceola native has the back nine at Royal Canberra GC to thank.

For the second day in a row Saturday, Danielson played the back nine in 3-under-par 33, taking advantage of the two par-5s (both birdies), en route to a 2-under-par 70. At 3-under 141 after 36 holes, the LET rookie is tied for 13th place with 15 other golfers, 11 shots behind leader Minjee Lee of Australia, who shot 63, but just four shots out of the top five with 36 holes to play.

After going birdie-birdie to start the back nine Friday midway through her 1-under 71, Danielson parred her first three holes starting her round Saturday. She picked up birdies on both par-5s (Nos. 15 and 18) to make the turn in 33.

Danielson parred eight of her last nine holes on the front; she bogeyed the par-3 third for the second day in a row. But her 37 was one shot better than her effort on the outward nine during the opening round when she had three bogeys and one birdie in shooting a 38.

The 36-hole cut came at 1-over 145 with 59 golfers advancing to the weekend. She will play in the seventh-to-last group Sunday at 9:30 a.m. local time (4:30 p.m. Saturday back home in Wisconsin) with England's Hannah Burke and Norway's Marianne Skarpnord. 

Australia's Katherine Kirk, who won the inaugural Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic near Green Bay last year, shot her second straight 70. She is tied for 11th at 4-under 140.
