Lee moves up with birdie blitz

South Korea's Meena Lee fired 10 birdies for a seven-under 64 in the second round yesterday morning (Singapore time) to grab a share of the lead at the US$1.3 million ($1.6m) LPGA North Texas Shootout in Dallas.

Lee and Germany's Caroline Masson, who fired her second consecutive 67, topped the leaderboard on eight-under 134 at Las Colinas Country Club.

Lee said: "I'm playing well and the course is really good. Good green speeds."

Americans Stacy Lewis and Natalie Gulbis shared third on 135 with compatriot Christina Kim another stroke adrift. - AFP.
