MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Defending champion Yani Tseng shot a 6-under-par 67 to maintain a two-stroke lead at the storm-interrupted second round of the Women’s Australian Open on Saturday.

Tseng had a two-round total of 9-under 137 at Commonwealth Golf Club. South Koreans Ji Eun-hee, who shot 70, and No. 1 Jiyan Shin (72) were two shots back.

Shin completed her final three holes of the first round Saturday morning along with 57 other players who were forced off the course when a thunderstorm hit the area Friday.

Jennifer Song, who shared the first-round lead with Shin, shot 73 and was three shots behind Tseng and tied for fourth with fellow American Cindy LaCrosse. LaCrosse, who shot 68, was also among those completing their rounds Saturday morning.
