MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - Sweden's Caroline Hedwall had a hole-in-one and finished with a 7-under 65 on Friday to take the second-round lead in the Women's Australian Open.

The Solheim Cup star aced the 160-yard par-3 16th, eagled the par-5 eighth after hitting to 4 feet and had five birdies and two bogeys at Victoria Golf Club to reach 11-under 133, one shot ahead of second-ranked Suzann Pettersen of Norway.

Pettersen, the first-round leader after a 66, had a 68.

Australian amateur Minjee Lee was 9 under after a 67. The 17-year-old Lee was second behind Cheyenne Woods last week in the Australian Ladies Masters.

Sweden's Anna Nordqvist had the round of the day, a 64 that broke the course record for women. She was tied for fourth at 8 under with 16-year-old New Zealander Lydia Ko and England's Holly Clyburn. Ko and Clyburn shot 68.
