Hur shoots 62, leads Ladies Scottish Open

Mi Jung Hur has surged into a two-shot lead in the rain-delayed second round of the Ladies Scottish Open, getting the best of the draw and finishing in the early evening with a nine under 62.

Players with Friday morning tee times dealt with heavy wind and rain at The Renaissance Club, and play was suspended in the early afternoon, delaying the start times for the second half of the field and giving them a huge advantage as the sun came out and the wind died.

The second round could not be completed Friday because of darkness.

Hur, who started in tenth place, made only one par over her first 12 holes.

The South Korean began with two birdies and then holed a pitch-and-run from the rough for eagle on the par-five 12th.

She made six more birdies, along with two bogeys, over her next nine, and added one more birdie to post a two-day total of 14-under 128.

Moriya Jutanugarn was 12 under after a 66.

Sharing third at 10 under were US Women's Open champion Jeongeun Lee (65) and Anne van Dam, who followed her opening-round 63 with a 69.

Muni He was the best of those who did not finish at nine under with three holes to play.

Australian Katherine Kirk is five under overall after carding a 69 in her second round, while compatriot Susan Oh is one shot back after a forgettable 73, including three bogeys and a double bogey.

Hannah Green also carded 73 in her second round, thanks to four bogeys, to be four under at the halfway point.

Minjee Lee is two over after becoming the third Australian to card a 73 in the second round.

Sarah Kemp will also battle to make the cut as she tries to better her opening round par on Saturday.
