Jenny Shin takes over at the top in Thailand

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.
