WILLIAMSBURG, Va., May 9 (UPI) -- Annika Sorenstam shot a 5-under 36 to build a three-stroke lead in Friday's second round at the LPGA's Michelob ULTRA Open golf tournament in Williamsburg, Va.
"Overall, I'm very happy with my round," Sorenstam said. "It was the kind of day with wind, some rain, little delay when we made the turn, so I'm very pleased that I hang in there. I hit some good shots (and) rolled in some beautiful putts to save par."
Sorenstam, a two-time winner on the women's tour this season, is trying for her 72nd LPGA win.
Meena Lee (67) is alone in fourth place at 8-under 134 and five players are tied for fifth at 6-under 136.
Defending champion Suzann Pettersen (71) is tied for 54th place at even-par 142.
