SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - Inbee Park still leads the U.S. Women's Open by two strokes after the end of the fog-suspended second round.

Jodi Ewart Shadoff birdied the 18th hole Saturday morning to move into sole possession of third place and a spot in the last group with Park and I.K. Kim when the third round starts later in the day. She had three holes to play when the horn sounded Friday evening and wound up shooting a 69 for a 5-under total.

Park and Kim finished their rounds Friday. Park is at 9 under and Kim at 7 under.

Players will start in groups of three from the first and 10th tees for the third round.

The cut was at 6 over. Among those just missing it were five-time major champion Yani Tseng and seven-time major champ Juli Inkster.
