Top-ranked Park shoots 66 for clubhouse lead at Evian

EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) — Top-ranked Sung Hyun Park shot a bogey-free 66 to take the clubhouse lead at 9-under 133 Friday in the second round of the Evian Championship.

The lead could have been more but Park three-putted the 18th for the second straight day at Evian Resort Golf Club.

Park, who is looking to win a third major title, is one shot ahead of first-round leader Paula Creamer. Sei Young Kim carded back-to-back 68s and trails Park by three.

The early starters got the best of sunny and warm conditions with rain forecast for later Friday and storms Saturday.

“I knew I had to score low for the first and second rounds, so I was a little aggressive,” Park said through a translator.
