Moriya leading in France

Moriya leading in France

Jessica Korda, of the United States, and Women's British Open victor In-Kyung Kim were a further shot back on four-under. The seven-time LPGA victor said she doesn't think about that result much anymore.

Moriya was the 2013 Rookie of the Year, but has never won on the LPGA Tour.

Moriya had chances to match her 65 from Friday's first round though let birdie chances slip after consistently accurate approach shots.

"But I reckon if I keep knocking on the door, one day it will be my turn", she said.

While in good position, she has ground to make up on Park, one of the form players of 2017, who also took advantage of a remarkable stroke of luck. Everything is a learning experience.

"I want to win my first tournament", Jutanugarn said. I'm in a good position and I am sure that it will happen some time.

The decision to re-boot the fifth and final major of this year's Ladies Professional Golf Association European Tour - which carries total prize money of $3.65 million (£2.76 million/€3.07 million) - received criticism from some players and observers, with the United States Jessica Korda, who was leading at two-under when play was scrapped, saying it "sucked".

The only sisters to have won on the LPGA Tour are Annika and Charlotta Sorenstam. Annika won 72 times, and Charlotta won once - at the 2000 Standard Register Ping in Arizona.

Former Clemson standout Deshaun Watson expected to start for Texans
Houston and Cincinnati are looking for their first win of the season after starting the Regular Season 0-1 last week. In the case of the Houston Texans this week, opportunity will fall to former Oregon Tight End Evan Baylis.

Uehara, ranked 163 in the world, had seven birdies to move into contention.

"I played pretty solid today", Moriya said, "couldn't make a little more putts".

A chip-in for birdie at the 16th put her into red figures and she capped the rally with another birdie on the 17th to add to her opening 66.

At 35, Kirk's first win in seven years in Wisconsin in July has rekindled her appetite for the game.

"The win this season was a huge confidence boost", admitted the veteran. "I mean, like I said at the press conference afterwards, because my goal was - I didn't set any goals going to the U.S. Open, and I would think maybe top 10 would be a great result for me, and I actually ended up having a top 5, so nothing to complain. Trying to get into the Olympics is even a thought".

In Thursday's foul conditions, Park made a quintuple bogey nine at the 11th [her second hole] and a six at the par three 14th.

Jutanugarn's three-under round gave her a one-shot lead over Japan's Ayako Uehara in the event reduced to 54-holes due to Thursday's adverse weather, while 2015 champion Lydia Ko is just three behind as she chases her first win of a disappointing year.

Jutanugarn's sister and former world number one Ariya, missed the cut for the second major in a row.
