INCHEON, South Korea (AP) -- Anna Nordqvist of Sweden shot a 2-under 70 to remain tied for the lead with Katherine Hull-Kirk of Australia after the second round of the KEB HanaBank Championship on Saturday.

Nordqvist had four birdies against two bogeys to move to 7-under 137 while Hull-Kirk had an eventful day with an eagle, a double bogey, five birdies and three bogeys.

Defending champion Suzann Petterson of Norway fired a 69 to move into a tie for third with South Korea's Ju Young Pak and Amy Yang, who both shot 71.

Inbee Park, who leads the money list and the player of the year rankings, struggled with her game and finished with a 73 that left her tied for 22nd.
