Teen leads field in LPGA event

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — Thai teen Ariya Jutanugarn followed her opening 7-under 64 with an even-par 71 in windy conditions to hold onto the lead in the LPGA Tour’s Kingsmill Championship.

The 17-year-old Jutanugarn bounced back from three early bogeys with three birdies to finish at 7 under, a shot ahead of second-ranked Stacy Lewis and Angela Stanford on the windswept River Course.

Lewis and Stanford both had their second consecutive 68s, the best rounds of the day. They played in the morning and experienced wind gusts that reached 22 mph.

Sandra Gal, 2007 winner Suzann Pettersen and two-time winner Cristie Kerr were two shots back.
