GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) Stacy Lewis moved into position to take the top spot in the world, shooting a bogey-free 8-under 63 on Saturday to match the 36-hole record in the ShopRite LPGA Classic.
The second-ranked Lewis had a 12-under 130 total on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club
A victory Sunday would guarantee Lewis the No. 1 ranking, which Inbee Park has held for 59 straight weeks after taking it from Lewis. Park, playing in the windier afternoon session, had two bogeys and a double bogey on her final five holes to shoot 71 and fall seven strokes behind Lewis.
Lewis, the 2012 winner, won the North Texas LPGA Shootout four weeks ago.
Christina Kim was a stroke back after 67.
First-round leader Jennifer Johnson followed her course record 63 with a 70 to finish at 10 under.
