"It was a lot of fun," Li said as she stood on a box to reach the microphone at her post-round press conference. "… You have to be patient. That's what I learned. Definitely. Because I did a good job of that this week and it really helped because I got triples and I came back with birdies. That's what's really important."

Another former prodigy, Michelle Wie, held a three-shot lead at 4-under after two rounds of 68. She was one of only two players under par.
