Pettersen leads by 1 as ANA fails to complete Round 2

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Suzanne Pettersen set the pace in the suspended second round of the ANA Inspiration Friday at Mission Hills Country Club.

Pettersen’s 3-under-par 69 left her at 7 under overall when play was halted because of darkness. She’s bidding to win her third major championship. Pettersen is one shot ahead of Inbee Park (69), Cristie Kerr (71), Minjee Lee (68) and Nelly Korda (69). 

Fifty-six players were still on the course when the LPGA halted play. They are scheduled to resume the second round Saturday at 7:15 a.m. local time. Golf Channel will air the second round’s finish from 7:30-9:30 a.m. local time and return for third-round coverage from 2-6 p.m. The first round was suspended by high winds.

Park got herself in position to make a run at her eighth major championship title despite an uncharacteristically cold putter. She had the lead until closing her round with back-to-back bogeys.

“It was really a nightmare for me on the greens today,” Park said.

The best putter in women’s golf took 30 putts on Friday even though she holed out a 9-iron from 129 yards for eagle at the sixth hole. Park took 31 putts in the first round.

Rolex world No. 1 Lydia Ko (70) and No. 2 Ariya Jutanugarn (70) are both just three shots off the lead.

Michelle Wie completed eight holes of her second round. She was 2 under on the day, 6 under overall, just one shot out of the lead.

Lucy Li,  the  14-year-old amateur, also completed eight holes of her second round. She was even par for the day, 1 under for the tournament.
