Hsu takes 2nd-round lead in Taiwan, Lydia Ko moves close

October 26 at 4:11 AM

TAOYUAN, Taiwan â€" Wei-Ling Hsu rode the support of her home crowd to shoot a 5-under 67 and take a one-stroke lead after two rounds of the LPGA Taiwan Championship.

Hsu had a two-round total of 9-under 135 on the Ta Shee Golf and Country Club, one ahead of first-round leader Jodi Ewart Shadoff, who shot 71 Friday.

Former No. 1-ranked Lydia Ko was the big mover with a round-of-the day 66 to move into third place and within two strokes of the lead.

The South Korean-born New Zealander had five birdies on her front nine then stalled somewhat on the back nine until an approach to one foot on the par-4 17th, a shot she called “one of the best of my career,” resulted in a birdie.

The tournament is the third of five being played on the LPGA’s annual Asian swing. Next week, it’s the Toto Japan Classic, followed by the Blue Bay LPGA on Hainan Island , China.
