Hannah Green extended her lead to three shots to continue her great start at the Women & # 39; s PGA Championship in Minnesota.

The Australian, 22, flipped a 69 to seven under par, who had shot a 68 at Hazeltine National on the opening day – making her the only player in the field to hit two laps under 70.

Ariya Jutanugarn is four substandard after a 70 while Lydia Ko and Park Sung-hyun are a further blow behind.

"I have had some luck on my path," said Green.

She added: "Even when you play this type of golf at a regular event, you are pretty proud of yourself.

" But this week I have never placed myself in this position , so to do this week at such a great location, definitely shows that things are going the right way. "

Scotland's Gemma Dryburgh and Melissa Reid in England are the highest-placed Britons except one more than par after around 70 and 76 respectively.

Reid had begun to be tied to the day for the second but bogeyed five holes to close the day, tied for the 26.

Green had achieved her first career led during a major tournament in the opening round and followed that with a three-under-second round , where four little birds were carded after a bogey in the first hole.

Jutanugarn from Thailand had two birdies and an eagle to close in. Green with title defender Park of South Korea also in the right.
