Tseng, Lewis trail Bo-Mee at Mizuno

RSS

SHIMA, Japan – South Korea's Lee Bo-Mee shot an 8-under 64 on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead after two rounds of the Mizuno Classic.

Lee, a regular on the Korean tour, had four birdies on the front nine at Kintetsu Kashikojima Country Club and added four more after the turn to finish at 10-under 134.

''My drives were good today, I was able to keep them on the fairway which was tough with this wind,'' Lee said. ''If I can keep driving and putting like this I feel good about my chances tomorrow.''

Rikako Morita of Japan, who briefly held the lead after an eagle on the par-5 13th, bogeyed three of the final five holes and was in second after a 68. Morita hit a 195-yard second shot to 10 feet and then made the eagle put on 13 but couldn't keep the momentum going when she bogeyed the par-4 14th.

''I hooked my iron on 14 and couldn't recover,'' Morita said. ''The bogeys caused me to fall back a few strokes but hopefully I can make them back tomorrow.''

Angela Stanford of the United States shot a 71 and was tied for third at 4-under 140 with South Korea's Na Yeon Choi, France's Karine Icher and overnight co-leader Ayako Uehara of Japan.

South Korea's Jiyai Shin, who shared the first-round lead, shot a 73 and was tied for eighth at 141 with a group of eight golfers that included defending champion Momoko Ueda of Japan, who shot a 69, American Stacy Lewis and Taiwanese star Yani Tseng, who both shot 70.

South Korea's Inbee Park, who opened the LPGA Tour's Asian swing with a victory in Malaysia and finished second last week in Taiwan, struggled with the wind and shot a 73 to be tied for 23rd at 143.
