HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (AP) - Anna Nordqvist made a 36-foot birdie
putt on the final hole Friday to break a tie with Nicole Castrale and take the lead after two rounds of the LPGA Championship.
Nordqvist, a rookie from Sweden, began the day in second place - one stroke behind Castrale. Starting on No. 10, Nordqvist birdied three of the first eight holes before losing momentum.
She was 2 over during a nine-hole stretch before making her 11th birdie of the tournament, on No. 9, to move to 8-under 136.
Castrale stumbled at the outset and charged to the finish while shooting a par 72.
Katherine Hull (69) and Lindsey Wright (68) were 6 under.
