PITTSFORD -- Top-ranked Yani Tseng shot a 2-under 70 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead over Pat Hurst after the second round of the LPGA Championship at Locust Hill Country Club.
Battling a downpour then a steady drizzle for nearly half her first nine holes, Tseng followed her first-round-best 66 with a grinding performance that put her at 8 under overall. She won the LPGA State Farm Classic two weeks ago for her second LPGA Tour victory of the year.
Hurst shot a 67 in the morning before the heavy rain hit Locust Hill Country Club.
Morgan Pressel, Minea Blomqvist, and Hee Young Park were 6 under after 69s.
Defending champion Cristie Kerr shot her second straight 72 to make the cut. Michelle Wie also opened with consecutive 72s.
