Park fired a 10-under 62 to match Mirim Lees course record, which Lee set about an hour and a half earlier. Park finished two rounds at 18-under 126. Park and Suzann Pettersen had set the 36-hole scoring mark at this event in 2012 when they posted a two-round total of 134. Park smashed that record on Friday. Everything was working really good out there today. I probably didnt hit as close as yesterday, but I holed a lot of putts today, Park said. Obviously, two days without the wind here in Taiwan is really unusual and I thought I should take advantage of that for two days and I feel like I did that. Shanshan Feng, who shared the first round lead with Park, closed with back-to- back birdies for a 7-under 65. Feng is alone in second place at Miramar Golf Country Club at minus-15. Lee jumped into a share of third place at 10-under-par 134. She was joined there by Lydia Ko (65), Azahara Munoz (66) and Line Vedel (68). Stacy Lewis, who lost the top spot in the world rankings to Park last Monday, stands alone in seventh place at 9-under 135 after a second-round 68. Park and Feng were in the final group together, and both got off to quick starts. They both birdied the first two holes. Park made it three in a row as she also birdied the par-3 third. However, Park stumbled to a bogey at the fourth to dip one behind Feng, who birdied the fourth. Park bounced right back with birdies at five and six to get to 12-under. Feng got up and downn for birdie at the par-5 sixth to remain tied with Park at minus-12. Stanley Roberts Jersey. Feng made it two in a row as she also birdied the seventh from eight feet out. Park once again had an answer. She holed her second shot for eagle on the par-4 eighth. That jumped her to 14-under, where she led by one. She would not lose the lead again. Around the turn, Park made a birdie putt from the back fringe at the 10th. She pitched her third shot at the par-5 12th to four feet and rolled that in for birdie. Park notched back-to-back birdies at 14 and 15 to move to 18-under. She had a chance to shoot 59 with three more birdies, but she parred the last three holes to card a 62. Yeah, definitely thought it was possible going into 13 and 14, because coming down the stretch, I thought there was a lot of birdie holes. Especially the last, its a par-5, Park said when asked if she thought about shooting 59. Feng, who was one down at the turn, stumbled to bogeys at 10 and 11 to slide four behind. She got one stroke back at the 12th. Feng climbed back to minus-13 as she made birdie on the par-3 14th. After a pair of pars, Feng birdied the final two holes to get within three shots after two rounds. NOTES: Park has the 36-hole lead for the second time this season and for the seventh time in her LPGA Tour career .. Park has won just two of the previous six times she was in this position ... Danielle Kang aced the par-3 17th giving her a hole-in-one for the second straight week ... Kang has three aces this season, which tied her with Charlotta Sorenstam (2002) and Tracy Kerdyk (1991) for the LPGA Tour record for most in one season. ' ' '
