Americans Paula Creamer and Jane Park shot 1-under 71s on Friday to share the second-round lead in the LPGA Tour's HSBC Women's Champions.
The third-ranked Creamer, coming off a third-place finish last week in Thailand, matched Park at 6-under 138 on the Tanah Merah Country Club's Garden Course.
Creamer has eight LPGA Tour victories, four last season. Park, the former UCLA star who won the 2004 U.S. Women's Amateur, is seeking her first LPGA Tour victory.
Katherine Hull, the Australian Ladies Masters winner last month, shot a 69 to join Mi Hyun Kim (68) at 5 under. Sun Young Yoo (69) and Ai Miyazato (72) were 4 under, and Angela Stanford (72) was another stroke back along with Lindsey Wright (69), Shanshan Feng (71) and Se Ri Pak (72). Stanford won the season-opening SBS Open.
Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa, the defending champion coming off her 25th LPGA Tour victory last week in Thailand, was 2 under after a 73. Fourth-ranked Suzann Pettersen (70) and Hall of Famer Juli Inkster (70) also were 2 under.
