Lydia Hall won the inaugural Ladies British Masters in 2012

Wales’ Lydia Hall holds a two-stroke lead in the Lalla Meryem Cup at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, Morocco.

Hall, 29, hit a four-under-par 68 to finish her second round on seven under par, two shots ahead of England’s Annabel Dimmock.

Norwegian Suzann Pettersen is a stroke further behind in third place.

“I needed to stay patient and not get ahead of myself. I made a lot of pars and kept the mistakes off the card,” Hall said.
