Stacy Lewis stormed to the top at the halfway stage of the 500,000-euro Dubai Ladies Masters, the season-ending championship of the Ladies European Tour, with a superb round of seven-under par 65 on Thursday. Eight birdies and a single bogey gave her a one-shot lead on top over Sweden’s Pernilla Lindberg at nine-under par 135. Lindberg, who is yet to win a tournament on the LET since turning pro in 2009, added a three-under par 69 to her opening round 67. Spain's Carlota Ciganda, winner of the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit last year, started the day as the joint leader, but slipped to third place at 137 with a two-under par 70.
