Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

South Korea’s Ha Na Jang shot a 4-un­der 67 on Fri­day to in­crease her lead to two strokes in the sus­pended sec­ond round of the LPGA Tour’s Marathon Clas­sic.

Jang had a 9-un­der 133 to­tal at High­land Mead­ows. Win­less in 23 ca­reer tour events, she capped her bo­gey-free round with a 12-foot birdie putt on the par-4 ninth.

South Korea’s Q Baek was sec­ond af­ter a 67.

The start of the round was de­layed 2 1/2 hours be­cause of rain and light­ning, and play was sus­pended for the day at 8 p.m. be­cause of more light­ning. Fifty-five play­ers were un­able to com­plete the round.
