SINGAPORE (AFP) - Australian veteran Karrie Webb extended her brilliant run of form by taking a two-shot lead at the HSBC Women's Champions tournament on Friday.

The 40-time LPGA Tour winner used all her experience as she recovered from two late bogeys to return a solid three-under-par 69 for an aggregate score of nine-under 135 at the Sentosa Golf Club's Serapong Course.

The 39-year-old topped the leaderboard, two strokes ahead of fellow former winner Angela Stanford, 36, who recorded 69 on day two. Taiwan's Teresa Lu was a shot further back in third.

"Two old ducks, I guess," said Webb sarcastically, referring to the top two. "Did you ask any of the young players if it's hard to play against girls in their 30s?"
