Inbee Park: Continuing her dominance
Inbee Park is on track to win her third straight major of the year after taking the lead on day two of the US Women's Open.
World number one Park, who was the youngest winner of this tournament when she was crowned champion in 2008, is looking for a clean sweep of major titles this season having already captured the Kraft Nabisco Championship and the LPGA Championship.
The South Korean is two shots clear of the chasing pack after a round of 68 at Sebonack Golf Club which featured six birdies and two bogeys.
That took her to nine under-par overall before play was suspended for the day due to fog at the course in Southampton, New York.
"I think we got very lucky that we finished today. I played very good golf today," Park told the LPGA's official website.
"I gave myself a lot of good opportunities, a very good ball striking day. I left a couple out there, but I'm very satisfied with today's score.
"It was a little tougher to play in the fog, but I made a birdie so I don't think it really came into effect for me."
Park's compatriot In-Kyung Kim is two shots back after a three-under-par 69, while American Lizette Salas and England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff are tied for third on four under overall, with the latter set to complete her remaining three holes of her second round on Friday.
Ha-Neul Kim was the surprise overnight leader but she faded badly, carding a 77 to fall back to one-under.
