ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - Michelle Wie shot her second straight 5-under 66 on Saturday to take a two-shot lead in the suspended second round of the NW Arkansas Championship.
Coming off a victory Sunday in the U.S. Women's Open at Pinehurst, Wie had six birdies and a bogey in her morning round at Pinnacle Country Club.
So Yeon Ryu, paired with Wie, was second after her second straight 67.
Seventy-two players were unable to finish the round because of afternoon thunderstorms.
Suzann Pettersen, Chella Choi and Line Vedel were three strokes back, and top-ranked and local favorite Stacy Lewis was four shots behind at 6 under.
Pettersen had a 67, Choi shot 65, and Vedel had five holes left.
Lewis birdied four of her first eight holes and finished with a 12-foot birdie putt on No. 9 for a 67. First-round leader Alena Sharp was 4 under overall after 15 holes.
