PITTSFORD (NEW YORK): Pak Se Ri fired a one-under 71 to take a one-shot lead while slumping Michelle Wie missed the cut with a 10-over 82 after the second round of the LPGA Championship on Friday.
"I'm happy to be back in this seat," Se Ri said. "Before I teed off, I knew it was tougher because of the wind. It was very difficult. I tried not to make big mistakes. I'm very happy about the finish. I got a couple of great up and downs."
She has a one stroke lead over South Korean Park Inbee, American Paula Creamer, Japan's Mika Miyazato and Sandra Gal of Germany.
American Michelle missed the cut by following her opening round of 74 with an 82.
Defending champion Yani Tseng struggled to make the cut. She opened with a 76 then followed with a 75 to finish the two rounds at seven-over 151.
"I did my best," Yani said. "I hung in there. I play good on the front nine." AFP
