Hall of Famer Juli Inkster, looking to extend to her streak of winning a tournament to eight years, shot a 5-under 66 and took a one-stroke lead over Christina Kim after two rounds of the Longs Drugs Challenge in Auburn, Calif. Inkster, a two-time winner of the tournament, is at 10-under 132 after a seven-birdie, two-bogey round.
"Overall, I played well today," she said. "Even on my bogeys, I was in the fairway and had my chances. I hit the ball well."
Kim, a non-winner in her second LPGA season, held a one-stroke lead after an opening 64. She began her second-round 69 with 13 straight pars, bogeyed 14 and then birdied three of the final four holes.
