Il-Hee Lee continues to lead the 2013 Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia after 2 rounds. The 24-year old South Korean is chasing her second LPGA tournament victory to go along with her win at the 2013 Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic. Lee fired a second round 6-under 65 (par is 71 here) to extend to 13-under overall. She did have it down to 14-under at one point before suffering her first bogey of the tournament on the par 5 16th to drop her one shot back. Hot on her heels is American Lexi Thompson, who sits 1 shot behind Lee at 12-under overall. Lexi’s 8-under round was highlighted by an eagle on the par 4 14th. As brilliant as Thompson’s day was, the round of the day belonged to South Korea’s Amy Yang who notched 10 birdies against a  lone bogey for a tournament record 9-under 62. That was good enough to vault her from 48th after round 1 into a tie for 6th after round 2 at 8-under overall.

BIRDIES

Shanshan Feng is in fine form after her win in Beijing last week. The Chinese star is 3 shots back at 10-under.

So Yeon Ryu is lurking after a 2nd round 6 under 65 left her at 7-under overall, tied for 8th.

Veterans Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr and Suzann Pettersen continue to lurk near the top of the leaderboard. Il-Hee, Lexi and Shanshan are still within striking distance.
