Gerina Piller followed her opening 8-under 63 with a 68 yesterday to maintain a one-stroke lead in the Marathon Classic.

"I don't feel like it's been a year since I actually won here last year", Ko told LPGA.com.

"My plans are going back to school, but I'm going to do Q school this fall and we'll see how that goes", she said. I stayed patient, not one on my front nine, and then reeled off three in a row on the back. This is the 10th consecutive domestic tournament on the LPGA Tour schedule.

"Just keep being top 5, because I've been top 10 after a couple days, so this time I was like, okay, I should be closer to the leaders than before, so that was my goal sort of for the tournament and for the British, and it kind of worked out". This is only her third LPGA event of 2017, but after a bogey-free 68 Friday, she's sniffing at the top of the leaderboard.

"I've learned a lot my rookie year out here".

"I like her makeup", Inkster said. "But I'm just sticking to it, and I hit some great iron shots, which helped".

"Tomorrow is a different day, and I'll just kind of do the same thing as I did today, go out there and take one shot at a time, as cliche as it sounds", Piller said. Sung Hyun Park, the US Women's Open victor at Trump National in New Jersey, had a 70 to join fellow South Korean Chella Choi (67) and Americans Brittany Lincicome (67) and Laura Diaz (67) at 8-under.

Park won the U.S. Women's Open last week.

Since she had not qualified for the Women s British Open, Aditi chose to make the journey to Ohio. "I'm just going to focus on that". At this point, it's now try to play better and get ready for links golf next week and just controlling ball flight and controlling spin. "I've just been trying to work on my game a lot".

Defending champion Lydia Ko, the former world number one seeking her first win since lifting this trophy previous year, opened with a two-over 73 that included three bogeys and one birdie.

After scoring a par on the first two holes, she went on role with birdies on four of the next five holes.

"It is hard, but if you can just kind of plug along and hit fairways and greens and keep it simple, that's what I feel", said Piller.
