Kristy McPherson held the clubhouse lead when play was halted for the day at the rain-ravaged LPGA Tour Championship in Richmond, Texas, on Sunday.
McPherson hit a five-under-par 67 to stand eight under for a weekend, which has so far comprised just 36 holes after torrential rains in the area.
She is one stroke ahead of LPGA Rookie of the Year, Jiyai Shin, who also currently leads the race for Player of the Year.
World number one and first-round leader Lorena Ochoa was another stroke back, along with Heather Bowie Young and Anna Nordqvist.
A number of players, including Ochoa, who was level for the day through 17 holes, and Bowie Young, who was three under through 16, were yet to finish their rounds when play was halted.
Reilley Rankin, five under for the weekend, still had five holes to play, and will continue in the morning before the cut is finally made and the third and final round can begin.
McPherson said: “I was lucky to play two uninterrupted rounds. That was nice to have.
“But it’s kind of weird having two days off in the middle of your tour championship.
“With the conditions, with the weather that we’ve had, it’s about as good as we could hope for.”
