Lydia Ko, Ha Na Jang Share Lead at Coates Golf Championship

Talkin' Golf With World No. 1 Lydia Ko
World No. 1 Lydia Ko, 18, of New Zealand on Olympic dreams, growing the game and why driving (a car, not a golf ball) is harder than she thought.

OCALA, Fla. (AP) Lydia Ko putted on one green and played six holes in a span of 11 hours before ending a long Friday in the same place she started - with a share of the lead in the Coates Golf Championship.

Ko three-putted from 15 feet for bogey in frigid morning weather to complete the rain-delayed second round. In the afternoon, she made one birdie to get back to 7-under par through six holes. Ko was tied with Ha Na Jang, who played 24 holes on Friday.

The third round was to resume Saturday morning, with the tournament finishing in the afternoon.

Jang shot 72 in the second round and was even par through six holes.

Lexi Thompson was among five players one shot behind. No one completed the third round.
