RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., March 25 (UPI) -- Annika Sorenstam and Rosie Jones, both trying to reach a substantial milestone, shared the lead Friday after two rounds of the Nabisco Championship.
Sorenstam shot a 69 and Jones had a 70 as they wound up tied for the top at 5-under 139. Mi Hyun Kim was alone in third at 140 while Grace Park and Reilley Rankin were at 141.
Morgan Pressel upstaged fellow-amateur Michelle Wie by completing 36 holes at 143. Wie slipped to a 74 at the Mission Hills Dinah Shore Championship Course and stood at 144.
Sorenstam is trying for her fifth consecutive victory, which would tie the all-time LPGA record owned by Nancy Lopez.
Jones is seeking her first major championship in what is expected to be her final full season on the tour. She birdied the par-5 18th late in the day to tie Sorenstam at the midway point.
