Candie Kung leads Canadian Pacific Women's Open
COQUITLAM, British Columbia (AP) Candie Kung birdied four of her final six holes Friday to match the course record with an 8-under 64 and take the second-round lead in the Canadian Pacific Women's Open.
The 34-year-old Taiwanese player had an 11-under 133 total at Vancouver Golf Club. Playing the back nine first, she birdied the first two holes and eagled the par-5 13th. The four-time LPGA Tour winner added birdies on Nos. 4 and 6-8.
Two-time champion Lydia Ko and first-round leader Karine Icher of France were tied for second. The 18-year-old Ko had a 68, and Icher followed her opening 65 with a 70.
Ko won in 2012 at Vancouver Golf Club at 15 years, 4 months to become the LPGA Tour's youngest winner and fifth amateur champion. The New Zealander successfully defended her title in 2013 as an amateur in Edmonton, Alberta.
