HOUSTON, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Kristy McPherson fired a 5-under-par 67 and took the lead Sunday in the suspended second round of the rain-plagued LPGA Tour Championship in Houston.

McPherson was at 8-under 136, a shot ahead of Jiyai Shin and two in front of Lorena Ochoa, Heather Bowie Young and Anna Nordqvist.

Many players, including Bowie Young and Ochoa, who were on the closing holes, were unable to complete the second round before play was suspended for the day.

Rains caused lengthy delays in the tournament at the Houston Golf & Country Club Friday and forced the cancellation of play Saturday. Tournament officials then decided to cut the event to 54 holes.

Once all scores are in for the second round Monday, players are to go straight to the third and final round.
