Japan's Ai Miyazato seizes LPGA lead
NAPLES, Florida (AFP) - Japan's Ai Miyazato collected nine birdies in an eight-under par 64 on Friday to take a one-shot lead midway through the Ladies Professional Golf Association LPGA tour's season-ending Titleholders tournament.
Miyazato, seeking a third victory this season, had just one blemish on her card, a bogey at the par-five second hole.
She more than atoned, with five birdies on the front nine and four more on the back at TwinEagles for a 10-under total of 134 after two rounds.
"I was just really calm out there all day long and I did really good on the greens," Miyazato said. "My game is really in good shape but I still have a couple more days so hopefully I can keep it going." She was one shot in front of South Korean Na Yeon Choi, the US Women's Open champion who carded a 68 for 135.
