The Swedish player shot a 5-under 67 on the Creek course Friday for a two-round total of 13-under 132. McDonald shot an 8-under 65 on the Beach course.
England veteran Laura Davies trailed by two strokes after the first round but shot 77 Friday and missed the cut along with Karrie Webb, whose 70 left her a shot behind Davies after an opening 75.
The field was cut to the leading 60 players plus ties for both men and women after the second round. A second cut will be made after the third round to the leading 35 players plus ties for both men and women.
In the men's tournament, France's Robin Sciot-Siegrist shot an 8-under 64 Friday to take a two-stroke lead over Travis Smyth of Australia. Sciot-Siegrist had a two-round total of 14-under 130.
