After a 63 in the second round, Minjee Lee has taken over the lead entering the weekend with strong, consistent play.
Lee was solid with eight birdies in the first round, but a bogey and a double-bogey hampered her from entirely dominating the day. In the second round, she made up for that with eight birdies, an eagle and one bogey.
Since that double bogey, Lee is -11 overall and playing terrific golf.
The trio tied at -11 behind Lee are Ally Ewing, Lexi Thompson and Madelene Sagstrom.
Sagstrom had the lead after the first round, but her second round was much more challenging with only four birdies and two bogeys to fall from sole possession of the top of the leaderboard.
Ewing and Thompson both shot 66s in the second round, with Ewing shooting home seven birdies after starting the day with her only bogey and Thompson with a clean scorecard of six birdies and zero bogeys overall.
