At the second round of the ANNIKA Invitational Latin America, Valeria Pacheco of Puerto Rico remains atop of the leaderboard after shooting an impressive 2-under-par 69. She will head into the final round leading by five strokes.
Pacheco, 17, had a very steady round of four birdies and two bogeys, and is looking to maintain her momentum heading into the final round.
Argentina’s Ela Belen Anacona has performed consistently through her first two rounds. She remains in second place shooting back-to-back rounds of 1-over-par 72.
After an opening round of 1-over-par 72, Valentina Rossi is now in third place shooting a 2-over-par 73 in the second round. She is six strokes off the lead going into the final round.
The champion of the event will receive an exemption into the South American Amateur Championship, while the top three will be invited to play in either the ANNIKA Invitational USA in St. Augustine, Florida or ANNIKA Invitational Europe in Sweden.
Following the second round of play, Annika hosted a clinic for the players and some local juniors who participated in a fun skills challenge hosted by The R&A and AAG. The day wrapped up with a karaoke dinner, where the girls showed off their vocal talents!
