Lee leads by two at Kingsmill

Lee started her second round with a birdie on the first before going on to hit four consecutive pars. 

She then let herself down with a bogey on the sixth before bouncing back with a birdie on the next hole. 

The 20-year-old rookie remained consistent on the back nine as she hit three more birdies on the 12th, 15th and 16th to finish with a second round 67. 

Two strokes behind Lee are Australia's Minjee Lee and France's Perrine Delacour. 

Lee began her round with a bogey on the first, but rallied back to hit an eagle on the par-five third and a birdie on the fourth, seventh and 18th. 

Delacour commenced her second round with a duo of pars before sinking a birdie on the third. 

She followed that up with a hat-trick of pars and an eagle on the par-five seventh. 

But, Delacour did not enjoy the same amount of success on her back nine as she hit a bogey on the 12th before finishing with a birdie on the 17th. 

Three shots off the lead is South Korea's So Yeon Ryu, who hit a second round 69, which included three birdies and a bogey. 

Klatten, who led after hitting a first round 65, faltered during the second round and plummeted down the leaderboard as she registered a 75, which consisted of a birdie, three bogeys and a double bogey on the par-four eighth. 

World number one Lydia Ko finished tied 22nd and remains seven shots off the lead after a second round 69, which saw her hit four bogeys, including a hat-trick of them from the 15th to the 17th, and a bogey. 

Inbee Park, who is ranked second, hit four birdies during her bogey-free round of 67, which was a major improvement from her first round 72. 

Meanwhile, defending champion Lizette Salas was cut after she followed her first round 74 with a 73, which included two birdies and four bogeys.
