Feng shoots 67, leads LPGA ShopRite

Shanshan Feng shot a marvelous 4-under 67 before the wind picked

up Saturday and grabbed a three-shot lead after two rounds of the

ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Feng, who last year became the first Chinese player to win an

LPGA Tour title and a major event in capturing the LPGA

Championship, matched the best score of the day. Using a new set of

clubs, she had a 6-under 136 total on the wind-whipped Bay Course

at the Stockton Hotel and Golf Club.

First-round co-leader Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand and Haeji

Kang of South Korea shared second at 3 under. Jutanugarn had a 73,

and Kang shot 69.

Defending champion and second-ranked Stacy Lewis shot a 9-over

80, matching her worst round since the third round of U.S. Women’s

Open last year. She fell from third to a tie for 50th.

Michelle Wie, looking for her first LPGA win in the United

States, rolled in four straight birdies on her back nine and was 4

under until a double bogey, bogey finish for a 73 that dropped her

to 1 under. The 23-year-old was tied for sixth with Karrie Webb,

Hee Young Park and Karine Icher and first-round co-leader Amanda

Blumenherst, who finished with a double bogey for a 75 after losing

a ball on her last hole.
