Mariajo Uribe overtakes Shin, Ko to lead Australian Women's Open after 2nd round

Mariajo Uribe shot a six-under 67 on Friday to overtake South Korea's Jiyai Shin and overnight leader Lydia Ko, taking the second-round lead at the LPGA Tour-opening Women's Australian Open.

The Colombian opened with a birdie after teeing off on the par-4 10th and made four more at Royal Canberra, including at the sixth and seventh as she moved to 15-under 131 and a one-stroke lead.

Two-time major-winner Shin fired eight birdies against two bogies for a 67, sharing second with 15-year-old amateur Ko, who followed an opening 63 with a 69 that included five birdies and a bogey.

Ko was grouped with top-ranked Yani Tseng (71), who finished eight strokes off the lead, and Michelle Wie, who looks likely to miss the cut after rounds of 74 and 73.
