OAKMONT, Pa. (AP) — Paula Creamer and Sakura Yokomine are tied for the lead at the U.S. Women’s Open following the conclusion of the rain-delayed second round.

Creamer had the only sub-par round after play resumed Saturday morning – a 1-under 70 at Oakmont Country Club that left her at even par. Yokomine finished up her second straight 71. Creamer played 16 holes on Saturday and Yokomine 15.

Yokomine and Creamer are one shot ahead of LPGA Championship winner Cristie Kerr and Brittany Lang, both of whom finished their second rounds before heavy rains halted play at midafternoon Friday.

Christina Kim, who also finished up on Friday, Sophie Gustafson and Suzann Pettersen are two shots off the lead.

The third round is scheduled to begin at approximately 2:30 p.m. EDT.
