Lewis retains Reignwood lead
Stacy Lewis shot a 5-under 68 on Friday to remain two clear of the field at the Reignwood LPGA Classic.
Brittany Lang is her closest competitor on 10 under-par after two rounds while Caroline Masson (68), Mirim Lee (68), Belen Mozo (69) and Caroline Hedwall (71) were tied for third at 8-under 138.
Lewis American opened with a bogey, but followed that with three birdies on the next four holes while carding three more birdies on the back nine.
Lang carded seven birdies and no bogeys to tie for the low round of the day.
The last time Lang came into the weekend so close to the lead was at the 2012 Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, which she went on to win.
Chasing down Lewis will be a first for Lang, but she insisted that whatever happens on the weekend, it would not influence the friendship they have.
“We’re really good friends though and I have a lot of respect for her on the golf course.” Lang told the LPGA’s official website.
“Yeah, definitely going to be out of my element, a little intimidated.
“She’s a great player. But at the same time, I’m trying to get better, too. So playing with her, watching her, and trying to play well and do my thing is going to make me better.”
