Annika Sorenstam shot a course-record eight-under-par 64 in perfect scoring conditions Saturday for a share of the lead with Kelly Robbins in the Canadian Women's Open at Markham.
Sorenstam, who began play five strokes behind Robbins and Rosie Jones, hit all 18 greens in regulation in her bogey-free round to match Robbins at 13-under 203 on Angus Glen's South Course.
"I'll take 18 birdie chances any day," Sorenstam said. "I'm very pleased with my round, and actually let a few chances go by."
The Swede just missed an 11-foot eagle putt on the par-five 16th, and also failed to convert four birdie opportunities inside 8 feet.
"I haven't won in a while, so I'm a little hungry," said Sorenstam, winless since the Chick-fil-A Charity Championship the first week of May.
After opening with a 71, she topped the field Friday with a 68 in the wind-swept second round.
Robbins, winless since the season-opening event in 1999, bogeyed the final two holes for her second consecutive 69. She hit into greenside bunkers on both holes.
"I felt a little tired out there and it caught up with me on 17 and 18," Robbins said. "I'm glad I didn't have any more holes to play. But I'm looking forward to tomorrow."
Rosie Jones, who began play tied for the lead with Robbins at 10 under, shot a 71 to drop two strokes back. She double-bogeyed the par-five 16th.
Bruce Summerhays finally played well in front of his family, neighbors and Utah fans, shooting a seven-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead after the second round of the senior Novell Utah Showdown at Park City.
Summerhays was at 12 under for the tournament, followed by first-round leader Mike Smith at 11 under and John Jacobs at nine under. Steve Veriato, Bruce Lietzke and Howard Twitty were another shot behind.
Summerhays lives in Heber City, about 20 miles from Park City, and often has struggled at the Senior PGA Tour's stop at the Park Meadows Country Club after battling pressure to perform or distractions such as trying to get extra tickets.
Until this year, that is.
After an opening-round 67, Summerhays had eight birdies and a bogey in the second round, giving his gallery of about 30 relatives and dozens of friends plenty to cheer about.
