Lee Mi-hyang survived a double bogey at the ninth to card a second round 67 on Friday and take the early lead in the second round at the Evian Championship. "So I feel like I'm hitting it better every day", she said. "I think that my putts are getting better", Park said.

Three other South Korean players are hot on her heels, with Sung Hyun Park (66) just one stroke off the lead and Inbee Park (69) and Jin Young Ko (66) tied for third at 11-under.

Park shot a bogey-free five-under 66 but wasted a chance to lead.

Australian Su-Hyun Oh is one shot back from Kirk as she continues to claw back up the leaderboard after a three-over 74 in the first round.

"I knew I had to score low for the first and second rounds, so I was a little aggressive", Park said through a translator, noting a forecast calling for rain through the weekend.

Thompson was far from impressed with the course conditions at the Evian Resort Golf Club and the American took to Instagram to express her frustration. "I was playing great, really consistent".

The women who claim to have been abused by Epstein fear his potential suicide bid means they will be "robbed of justice". So unless Epstein got attacked by a different inmate , that leaves us with either a suicide attempt or a hoax.

Lee and her compatriots were the main beneficiaries - the 26-year-old ending her round birdie, birdie, eagle in stark contrast to Creamer.

Evian: Former US Open champion Paula Creamer produced one of her best rounds ever as she carded a 64 on the opening day of the Evian Championship, one of the five majors in the women's calendar, on Thursday. Sweden's Caroline Hedwall was the only player to match Kim's seven under on Friday and is one of six on six under going into moving day.

"I think my putting went really well, that's why I was able to play so consistently", said two-time major victor Park Sung-hyun. Jessica Korda shot her third round of 70 to move to 3 under overall, while Nelly Korda is two shots behind.

"I'm actually very thankful that I don't have to put myself thru that for another two days". With the onset of thunder, yeah, just came a lot quicker than I thought.

Park, 25, has already won two legs of the grand slam - the U.S. Women's Open in 2017 and the Women's PGA Championship previous year.
