Korda rides hot putter in the desert to early 36-hole lead
One hole later, after hitting a fat shot from the fairway, she again had to make a par putt from some 25 feet. Korda was at 11-under 133, two shots clear of Mirim Lee, who also played bogey-free in the rising heat for a 65. If the lead holds, it would be the first time she takes a 36-hole lead into the weekend at a major. “I didn't miss a lot of shots, so I look forward to the next couple rounds,” Lee said. “The thing out here is you hit a solid putt and it keeps on going,” Korda said.
