INCHEON, South Korea (AP) - Suzann Pettersen shot a 4-under 68 Saturday to extend her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA KEB HanaBank Championship.

The Norwegian did not reach the level of her opening round when she carded a course-record 63, but she still had a strong lead going into the final day of the three-round event at the Sky72 Ocean Course at Incheon.

South Korea's Ryu So-yeon had a 70 to hold second place, a stroke ahead of compatriot Se Ri Pak - who had the day's best round with a 67 - plus Germany's Sandra Gal and world number one Yani Tseng.

Tseng, the defending champion, recovered from a spell of three bogeys in four holes to work her way into contention.
