RSS

World No. 1 Inbee Park took control of the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship on Friday, shooting a 10-under 62 to open a three-shot lead after 36 holes.

Park, who shared the first-round lead with China's Shanshan Feng, birdied five of her first six holes at Miramar Golf Country Club, mixing in a bogey. She added an eagle on the par-4 eighth hole, making the turn in 6-under 30.

On the back nine she birdied Nos. 10, 12, 14 and 15 to get to 10 under for the day and in contention for a 59. She missed a short birdie putt on 16, however, and parred in to match the course record, set earlier in the day by Mirim Lee.

Feng shot a 65 and is the only player within seven shots of Park.

Lydia Ko made six straight birdies - from No. 2 through No. 8 - on her way to a 65. She is tied for third at 10 under with Lee and Azahara Munoz, who shot a 66, and Line Vedel (68).

Stacy Lewis shot a 4-under 68 that included a water-ball double bogey on the ninth hole. She is alone in seventh, nine shots back.
