Saso leads Ko by 2 after another 64
KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) Yuka Saso shot her second consecutive 8-under 64 on Thursday to take a two-shot lead over surging Lydia Ko after two rounds of the Lotte Championship.
Saso, who's playing on a sponsor's exemption, made seven birdies in her first 10 holes to catch Ko, who shot 63 earlier Thursday at Kapolei Golf Club. The 19-year-old from the Philippines then birdied the 16th and 17th holes to reach 16 under.
Not bad a player in her sixth LPGA Tour event who's uncomfortable with the Hawaii wind.
