Mhairi McKay leads the British challengers at the half-way stage of the Du Maurier Classic at Royal Ottawa but hopes to get her putter going to move up the Tour money list.

The Scot added a 73 to her opening 70 and finished on one under par at 143, the same as defending champion and world No 1 Karrie Webb. Sweden's Annika Sorenstam repeated her opening 69 to take the half-way lead on six-under-par 138 but Britain's Laura Davies slumped to a 75 and just survived the cut in the final major of the women's season. McKay, whose first round was completed in near darkness after a storm delay, had three birdies to boost her hopes of climbing from 99 on the money list and securing her card for next year.
