Lewis shoots 65 again to tie tournament record

Stacy Lewis tied a tournament 36-hole record with a second-round 65 on Saturday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club to maintain the lead entering Sunday's final round.

Lewis' two-day total of 130 leads Anna Nordqvist, who shot a 67, by six strokes and holds a seven-stroke edge over the third-place foursome of So Yoen Ryu, Azahara Munoz, Katherine Hull and Paula Creamer.

Nordqvist rebounded nicely in the second round, surging from sixth place the first day after making birdies on six holes, including three consecutive ones on 11, 12 and 13.

Yani Tseng, the world's No. 1 player, finished in a four-way tie for seventh. She had a nice spell with birdies on four-straight holes before falling off in the latter portion of the round, stung by bogies on the par-four fourth hole and par-three seventh hole. Tseng closed with a birdie on the par-five ninth hole.
