Creamer trails Kerr by 1 shot

Cristie Kerr shot a one-under 70 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead over fellow American Paula Creamer at the halfway mark of the US Women's Open at Saucon Valley's Old Course in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Kerr, the 2007 champion, stood at three-under 139, while Creamer drained a 35-footer to birdie the last and finish with a 68 for 140.

Another stroke back was unheralded American Jean Reynolds. The 24-year-old Futures Tour player shot 72.

"I played great," said 31-year-old Kerr, who has three other top-10 showings in the championship besides her victory. "The mindset for the weekend is you have to be focused on every shot."

Tied for fourth on level-par 142 were first-round leader Choi Na-yeon of South Korea, who posted 74, and Giulia Sergas of Italy, who fired a tournament-low 67.

World No. 1 Lorena Ochoa of Mexico posted an eight-over 79 for 148.

That was still good enough to qualify for weekend play as 72 players made the cut that was set at nine-over 151.

Among those missing were 1998 champion Pak Se-ri of South Korea (153), 2008 LPGA Championship winner Tseng Yani of Chinese Taipei (156) and 13-year-old amateur Feng Yueer of China (164).
