SYLVANIA, Ohio – Laura Diaz rallied for four birdies down the stretch to shoot a 2-under-par 69 for a three-stroke lead over Lydia Ko and Lee-Anne Pace after Friday’s second round of the Marathon Classic.

Diaz, who has devoted more time to her family than the LPGA Tour in recent years, led by four shots after shooting a bogey-free 62 in the opening round. She was at 11-under 131 entering the weekend.

Rookie Ko shot a second consecutive 67 to share second with South African Pace (68).

Jimin Kang (73), a graduate of King’s High School in Shoreline, was tied for 67th place at 1 over.

Players with scores of 144 and worse missed the cut, a group that included former Washington Huskies players Anya Alvarez (73-73—146) and Louise Friberg (72-74—146).
