7:28 am on 10 October 2008

New Zealand has slipped back after two rounds of the Women's World Team golf Championship in Adelaide.

Cathryn Bristow, Natasha Krishna and Dana Kim are now in a share of 14th place after a seven-over-par 153 on the par-73 East course at Grange Golf Club.

They started strongly, jumping to third place midway through the second round, but had an indifferent second nine holes, with lefthander Bristow shooting a three-over 76 and Krishna and Kim both firing 77, leaving them 10 over par.

Sweden continue to run away from the record 54-nation field, the Swedish trio now on 15-under-par overall after a six-under effort to go eight shots clear of Spain, who shot a superb eight-under par on the East course.
