SYLVANIA, Ohio, July 2 (UPI) -- Na Yeon Choi hung onto the lead of the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic Friday, firing a 4-under 67 for a two-shot advantage after two rounds.

The South Korean, who held a one-shot lead after 18 holes, completed two rounds at Highland Meadows Golf Club at 11-under 131, two clear of Christina Kim (67), Alena Sharp (68) and Inbee Park (66), all of whom finished at 9-under 133.

Knotted in fifth place at minus-6 were Beatriz Recari (67), Stacy Prammanasudh (67), Stacy Lewis (69), Song-Hee Kim (66), In-Kyung Kim (66) and Kristy McPherson (68).

Jiyai Shin, the former world's top woman golfer, registered a 1-under 70 and ended up as part of gaggle of eight golfers tied for 11th at 5-under 137.

Missing the cut was 2008 Jamie Farr champion Paula Creamer, who was playing in her first tournament since undergoing thumb surgery four months ago.
