|Hur Takes 1-Shot LPGA Lead With 2nd Straight 66
|SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- M.J. Hur had two chip-in birdies in a second consecutive 6-under 66 that gave her a one-shot lead over Amy Yang after the second round of the LPGA's State Farm Classic on Friday.
Yang was at 11-under 133 after a 65 at Panther Creek Country Club. Cristie Kerr shot a 67 and was at 10 under with Inbee Park (67), Alena Sharp (68) and Na Yeon Choi (69).
Michelle Wie shot 69 for the second day in a row and was six shots back.
First-round leader Shanshan Feng was shot even par and was in a group of nine at 8 under.
Hur played her round during the morning in a stiff wind. Yang played in the afternoon, when the wind began to gust, making scoring even more difficult. Yang was one of just three players to post a low number in the afternoon.
