Lydia Ko bounced back from a horror start to leap up the leaderboard at the  HSBC Women's Champions tournament in Singapore.

The 16-year-old Kiwi bogeyed two of the first three holes today but recorded five unanswered birdies to get to two-under and a tie for 13th in the $US1.4 million LPGA Tour event.

Ko started today's second round in a tie for 28th at one-over.

She is seven shots off the pace, which is being set by Australian former world No 1 Karrie Webb.

Webb is at nine-under, two shots ahead of American Angela Stanford with Taipei's Teresa Lu third at six-under.
