Stanford: Opened up a two-shot lead

Stanford led overnight alongside fellow American Michelle Wie and Candie Kung of Chinese Taipei but that pair could only manage a 71 and a 75 respectively, meaning Stanford, 11 under overall, had a new challenger in the shape of Park Inbee.

The South Korean was nine under after a second-round 68, one clear of Christie Kerr in third, while Kung sat in a group of three on seven under.
