SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) Ha Na Jang shot a 2-under 69 on Saturday, leaving her a stroke ahead with one round left in the LPGA Tour's rain-plagued Marathon Classic.

The South Korean player had an 11-under 202 total at Highland Meadows. Fighting back pain, she opened with rounds of 66 and 67 and has only two bogyes over the first 54 holes.

Play was delayed for 1 hour, 59 minutes in the afternoon. Delays Friday forced 54 players to complete the second round Saturday morning.

South Korea's Q Baek was second. She birdied the final hole for a 68.

Defending champion Lydia Ko, ranked No. 2 in the world, was 9 under along with top-ranked Inbee Park,

Chella Choi, Austin Ernst and Shanshan Feng. Ko and Park shot 67, Choi had a 65, Ernst a 66, and Feng a 68.

Third-ranked Stacy Lewis was tied for 23rd at 5 under after a 69.
