Jenny Shin takes over at the top in Thailand

LPGA Tour

South Korean Jenny Shin is the new leader at the Honda LPGA Thailand after following up her opening 65 with a four-under-par 68.

Shin’s 11-under-par total was good enough for a one-shot lead over American Lizette Salas (68), Australian Minjee Lee (69) and countrywoman Eun-hee Ji, who held the overnight lead after her spectacular 63 on day one and managed to stay within touching distance of the top thanks to a second-round 71.

Lee looked set to hold a share of the lead before a late bogey saw her join the tie for second.

Sharing third place on nine under are Austin Ernst (66) and a pair of Amys – Yang (66) and Olson (67).

World No 1 Ariya Jutanugarn (72), former No 1 Lydia Ko (67) and Michelle Wie (72) are among those on four under, seven back.
