From LPGA News, by AP:
Leona Maguire shot a 8-under 64 on Friday to take a three-stroke lead in the Meijer LPGA Classic, the second straight week the Irish rookie has topped a leaderboard.
The 26-year-old former Duke player is trying to become the first Irish winner in LPGA Tour history...
Maguire had a 15-under 129 total at Blythefield Country Club. Starting her morning round on No. 10, she had five birdies in a back-nine 31, bogeyed Nos. 1 and 2, then birdied Nos. 4 and 6, eagled the par-5 eighth and birdied the par-4 ninth.

From the Irish Examiner:
Leona Maguire holds a three-shot lead after shooting a stunning 64 in the second round of the Meijer LPGA Classic in Michigan.
The Cavan golfer began the day in a share of the lead and continued her fine form with five birdies in her first nine holes.
Back-to-back bogeys on the 1st and 2nd holes - her 10th and 11th of the day - were chalked down as a mere wobble as Maguire, with Shane Lowry's former caddie Dermot Byrne on her bag, picked up five shots on her final six holes.
That included an eagle-birdie finish to establish a three-stroke advantage, on 15-under, ahead of Australia's Su Oh. Read more
