MOBILE, Ala. Angela Stanford shot her second straight 5-under 67 on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead in the Bell Micro LPGA Classic.
"I'm having such a good time playing this golf course," said Stanford, who won the 2003 ShopRite LPGA Classic for her lone tour title.
"It's been a while since I've been in this position, and I'm just having so much fun this week that I don't think there's any pressure."
Stanford had seven birdies, including four in a row on the back nine, to reach 12-under 204 on The Crossings course at Magnolia Grove.
Canadian Women's Open winner Katherine Hull was 8 under after a 68, and Angela Park (69) and Shanshan Feng (70) were tied for third at 6 under.
Cristie Kerr, two strokes ahead of Stanford after a second-round 66, shot a 76 to drop seven shots back at 5 under. Danielle Downey (64), Kim Hall (67), Kristy McPherson (67), H.J. Choi (67), Hee Young Park (70) and Reilley Rankin (72) also were 5 under.
