WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) – Hee Young Park topped the leaderboard at 8 under Friday in the suspended second round of the Kingsmill Championship.

The South Korean player shot a 3-under 68 to take a one-stroke lead over Stacy Lewis, Brittany Lang, Lexi Thompson, Azahara Munoz and Lizette Salas.

The second-ranked Lewis, in position to take the top spot in the world ranking from Inbee Park, had a 65, and Lang finished with a 68.

Thompson, Munoz and Salas were unable to finish the round because of darkness after the start of play was delayed 3 1/2 hours because of overnight rain. Thompson, the Kraft Nabisco winner, and Munoz had five holes left, and Salas had seven remaining.

Coming off a victory two weeks ago in the North Texas LPGA Shootout, Lewis would jump to No. 1 with a victory or a solo second-place finish, as long as third-ranked Lydia Ko doesn't win. Ko, 2 under with six holes left in the round, needs a victory to move to No. 1. Inbee Park is skipping the tournament.
