England's Holly Clyburn shot a 7-under 65 Friday to move to 8-under 136 and into a tie for the clubhouse lead during the second round of the Women's Australian Open.
Clyburn and Scotland's Catriona Matthew (69) held a one-stroke edge over Germany's Caroline Masson, who shot 71. Another stroke back at 6-under after a 71 was five-time champion Karrie Webb.
Overnight leader SooBin Kim, who shot a course-record 63 on Thursday on The Grange's West course, had an afternoon start Friday, as did top-ranked and defending champion Lydia Ko, who shot 70 Thursday.
Canadian Brooke Henderson shot 71 Friday and was at 3-under. Cheyenne Woods had a 78 and was at 4-over, unlikely to make the cut.
The tournament is sanctioned by the LPGA, Australian Women's and Ladies European tours.
