Nordqvist endures 2 late bogeys to retain Thailand lead by 1 shot after 2 rounds

Despite two late bogeys, Anna Nordqvist of Sweden shot even-par 72 to cling to the lead at the LPGA Thailand after a rainy second round on Friday.

Nordqvist, chasing her first win on the U.S. LPGA Tour since 2009, bogeyed the 16th and 18th holes to settle on 6-under 138, one stroke in front of Paraguay's Julieta Granada (68), Spain's Azahara Munoz (68) and Germany's Sandra Gal (70).

A further shot behind were Americans Stacy Lewis (69) and Michelle Wie (73).

World No. 1 and defending champion Inbee Park and No. 2 Suzann Pettersen were four shots back.
