Saturday, May 31, 2014
GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Stacy Lewis moved into position to take the top spot in the world, shooting a bogey-free, 8-under 63 on Saturday to match the 36-hole record in the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
The second-ranked Lewis had a 12-under 130 total on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club
A victory Sunday would guarantee Lewis the No. 1 ranking, which Inbee Park has held for 59 straight weeks after taking it from Lewis. Park, playing in the windier afternoon session, had a 70 to fall six strokes behind Lewis.
Lewis, the 2012 winner, won the North Texas LPGA Shootout four weeks ago.
Christina Kim was a stroke back after 67.
First-round leader Jennifer Johnson followed her course record 63 with a 70 to finish at 10 under.
