Ryu shoots bogey-free 66 to extend early lead

LONDON, Ontario (AP) So Yeon Ryu of South Korea shot a 6-under 66 Friday in another bogey-free round to take an early five-stroke lead at the Canadian Women's Open.

American Christie Kerr had a 68 and Anna Nordqvist of Sweden shot a 69 at London Hunt and Country Club. Kerr won the tournament the last time it was held here in 2006.

Brittany Lincicome, who was a runner-up to Inbee Park at the LPGA Championship last week, had the best round of the day so far with a 65 and trails Ryu by seven shots.

Ryu set a course record with a 63 on Thursday.
