CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) Morgan Pressel matched the course record with an 8-under 64 on Friday for a share of the second-round lead in the Kia Classic with Mirim Lee.

Pressel had eight birdies in her bogey-free morning round at Aviara to match Lee at 10-under 134. The American won the last of her two LPGA Tour titles in 2008.

Lee, the first-round leader after a 65, had a 69. The 24-year-old South Korean player won LPGA Tour events last year in Michigan and China.

Top-ranked Lydia Ko was tied for ninth at 7 under after a 70, her 26th straight LPGA Tour round under par - three short of Annika Sorenstam's record set in 2004 - and 29th worldwide.

Pressel matched the course record set last year by Dori Carter.
