Home game: Gerina Piller leads in stormy Texas

IRVING, Texas (AP) Gerina Piller made herself right at home Friday in the LPGA Tour's Volunteers of America Texas Shootout, shooting a 6-under 65 to take the lead in the suspended second round.

The long-hitting U.S. Solheim Cup player lives in Plano, about 20 miles from Las Colinas Country Club. She birdied three of the final five holes in her bogey-free round to reach 10-under 132.

Play was suspended because of rain just after 4 p.m. and called for the day because of lighting a little after 6 p.m. None of the afternoon starters were unable to finish. The field will be cut to the low 70 and ties after the completion of the round Saturday morning, then trimmed again to the low 50 and ties after the third round.

South Korea's Eun-Hee Ji was a stroke back at 9 under after a 66.

First-round leader Mi Jung Hur was 8 under with six holes left. The South Korean player lives in the area in McKinney.
