Ochoa has two-shot lead at Sybase Classic

CLIFTON, N.J., May 17 (UPI) -- Two-time defending champion Lorena Ochoa had a 5-under 67 Saturday and took a two-shot lead after two rounds of the LPGA's Sybase Classic at Clifton, N.J.

Ochoa finished 36 holes at 9-under 135 and is in position to win the tournament for a third straight time Sunday. Friday's play was washed out by rain so the tournament will be decided in the third round Sunday.


Sophie Gustafson shot a 68 to move into a share of second place at 7-under 137. She was tied with Teresa Lu (69).

Na Yeon Choi and H.J. Choi both shot 68 and are tied for fourth at minus-six. Annika Sorenstam, one of three first-round leaders, turned in a 73 that dropped her into a share of seventh at 140.

"I thought it was very windy. It was gusting at times," said Sorenstam. "It was tough to figure out if it was downwind or into the wind because a lot of holes it was cross."
