So Yeon Ryu moved into position Friday to run away with the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open.

With a 6-under-par 66 in the second round, Ryu is at 15-under overall, good for a five-shot lead on Na Yeon Choi (70), Anna Nordqvist (69) and Danielle Kang (68) heading into the weekend at London Hunt and Golf Club in Ontario.

Ryu, who opened with a course record 63, has yet to make a bogey over two rounds.

“I played this golf course as practice, and I thought it was a really tough golf course,” Ryu said in her post-round media session. “So, I couldn't believe I shot 63.”

Ryu, 24, is seeking to win her third LPGA title, her first in two years. She won the U.S. Women’s Open in 2011.

Lydia Ko, 17, seeking to win this event for a third consecutive year, shot 69 Friday and is 10 shots behind Ryu.

Rolex world No. 1 Stacy Lewis shot 68 and is 10 back. No. 2 Inbee Park shot 71 and is eight back.

Brittany Lincicome, who lost to Park in a playoff at last week’s Wegmans LPGA Championship, had the round of the day with a 65 to move seven shots off the lead.
