Stacy Lewis overcame exhaustion and sore feet to finish with four consecutive birdies for part of the lead on day two of the Ladies Scottish Open.

The American achieved a flawless 66 for a tie with the Spanish Azahara Munoz, who hit 68 out of five under par.

The American Jennifer Song is a shot adrift, but Scotsman Gemma Dryburgh slipped seven with a 75 at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick.

Dryburgh and Meghan McLaren of England lead the British challenge by two.

Former world number one Lewis was one of the players who had to complete their first round on Friday morning due to a two-hour fog delay on Thursday, with the 35-year-old playing her last four holes in half thanks to an eagle on the 16th.

After a short break, she was back on the court and reached the tournament in style halfway through a long but productive two days.

"It was about 8:30 pm when they blew the horn last night and then the keypad system didn't work to get into the parking garage," said Lewis, who won the Women & # 39; s British Open in St. Andrews 2013.

"So we got into the hotel a little before 10pm, I think I was in bed at 10.45pm. Then we had to leave this morning at 5.30am. hours to go back for the 8am restart.

"Everyone's feet hurt. We all rubbed our backs at the end. It was definitely an adventure for the past two days. "
