LPGA Championship 2nd-Round Review

LPGA Championship from Locust Hill CC

At the Top: Cristie Kerr's 6 under 66 has her five shots up with 36 holes to play as she pursues a second major title.

Lurking: Is Japan's Mika Miyazato biding her time? The world's No. 1 shot 70 and shares second with South Korean Inbee Park, winner of the 2008 U.S. Women's Open.

Same Players, New Day: First-round tri-leaders Stacy Lewis and Seon Hwa Lee plunged, each putting up 74.

The Stuff of Legends: Hall of Famer Nancy Lopez, a three-time winner at Locust Hill, went 87-86 and missed the cut by 25 shots.

Been There, Done That: In a span of six holes Terra Postmumus, an assistant pro at TPC Scottsdale, went double-par-triple-double-quad-double en route to a 90.

Toughest Hole: The par-4 13th caused all kinds of grief, extracting 47 bogeys, 16 doubles and three "others" from the field. It played to a 4.573 average. Posthumus made 9 there.

Easiest Hole: The par-5 17th, a scant 478 yards, provided the greatest respite for a second straight day. An eagle and 39 birdies factored into a 4.81 stroke average. Posthumus made 4 there.

Quotable: Cristie Kerr on sitting 10 under: "I don't think anybody expected anybody to be in double digits after two days."

Quotable II: Inbee Park on Kerr's 66: "This afternoon with the wind it was almost impossible to shoot that number."

On Tap: Play has been moved up Saturday in anticipation of inclement weather in the afternoon. Players will start off both tees at 7 a.m. The leaders figure to go out around 9. The chance of rain/thunderstorms is 40 percent in the morning and 60 percent in the afternoon.
