September 03, 2009

With 17 starts this year, Kim has six Top 10s and earnings of more than $690,000.

PRIDDIS, Alberta (AP) -- Song-Hee Kim shot a tournament-record 62 Friday to share the lead midway through the second round at the Canadian Women's Open.

The 21-year-old South Korean is looking for her first LPGA Tour victory. She was tied at Priddis Greens with Suzann Pettersen, who had a 68.

Michelle Wie seemed likely to miss the cut for the first time this season. She rebounded with a second-round 69 but was tied for 98th.

Kim's round started with six straight birdies. She finished two strokes ahead of Rawson's course record set a day earlier.

First-round leader Anna Rawson was among the afternoon starters and was two behind Kim and Pettersen. Janice Moodie (65) and M.J. Hur (67) were another shot back.

Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa (68) and Women's British Open winner Catriona Matthew (66) were a stroke back, and Hur (67), Angela Stanford (65) and Sun Young Yoo (66) were 7 under. First-round leader Anna Rawson followed her opening 64 with a 73 to finish at 5 under. Wie was 3 over after a 69. She shot a 76 Thursday.
