Ai Miyazato, Munoz share lead at LPGA LOTTE Championship

Ai Miyazato and Azahara Munoz both went well below par Thursday, and are tied for the lead after two rounds of the LPGA LOTTE Championship.

Munoz fired an eight-under 64 while Miyazato carded a 65 at Ko Olina Golf Club. They share first at eight-under-par 136.

In contrast to Wednesday's opening round, during which windy conditions kept scores low, Thursday's was full of red numbers. Jimin Kang shot a 66 to rise into a tie for third with Cristie Kerr (68) at minus-six, while Meena Lee's 65 helped her climb into a share of fifth at five-under 139. Suzann Pettersen (69) and Brittany Lang (70) also sit at minus-five.

However, not all players went below par Thursday, and some had big problems.

World No. 1 Yani Tseng stumbled to a few bogeys that limited her to shooting even-par 72, and remained at three-under. She is in a group tied for 12th.

Meanwhile, first-round leader Beth Bader struggled to a five-over 77 and fell into a tie for 41st, at plus-one. She still made the cut.

Michelle Wie, on the other hand, carded a four-over 76 that put her at plus-10. She posted a quadruple bogey at the first and missed the cut for the third consecutive event.
