"I had a really good day," said Shirley, a manager of rules and competitions for Atlanta Junior Golf. "I hit the ball really solid and made a couple good putts at the end. It was a solid round for sure."
First-round leader Dawn Woodard of Greer, South Carolina, was a stroke back after a 72.
Potter, from Granger, Indiana, was third at even par after 72.
