Miyazato leads Evian by a shot with a round left

EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) — Mika Miyazato of Japan shot a 2-under 69 Saturday for a one-stroke lead after two rounds of the Evian Championship.

She recovered after bogeys on the first two holes and is at 8 under overall with a round left in the major. The tournament was cut to 54 holes after play was washed out Thursday.

Teen amateur Lydia Ko of New Zealand and Suzann Pettersen of Norway are at 7 under. Miyazato and Pettersen shot 69s — with four birdies and two bogeys each — while the 16-year-old Ko had four birdies in a 67.

Miyazato is looking for her first U.S. LPGA title this year. Stacy Lewis is two shots back after a 67. The American is chasing her second major title this season after last month’s British Open.
