ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Ariya Jutanugarn remained in position for her third straight LPGA Tour victory, shooting a 4-under 68 on Friday to take a two-shot lead in the Volvik Championship.

Jutanugarn had four back-nine birdies, including No. 18 when her approach went off a hospitality suite and landed in a greenside bunker 20 yards from the hole. Her sand shot set her up for a short putt and an 11-under 133 total.

She is coming off a win at the Kingsmill Championship after becoming the first Thai winner in tour history the previous week in Alabama.

So Yeon Ryu (67) Marina Alex (67) and first-round leader Christina Kim (71) were tied for second.

Jessica Korda (65), Giulia Molinaro (67) and Brittany Lincicome (67) were another two shots back.

Top-ranked Lydia Ko was 2 under after her second straight 71.
