Having seen her opening round cut short by heavy rain, the 17-year-old returned to the Atlantis Resort's Ocean course early on Friday to card a 72,.
The New Zealander then carded a 71 to be a three-under after 36 holes, good enough for a share of 18th.
Sung Young Yoo of South Korea is the clubhouse leader on seven-under, having carded a bogey-free 69 on Friday.
Sung is joined by Brittany Lincicome, with the American having played just five holes of her second round.
Lincicome is one of 60 players yet to complete 36 holes after the weather once again wrecked havoc with the tournament.
