Neumann ahead in Du Maurier

Sweden's Liselotte Neumann carded a six-under-par 66 to take a three- stroke lead after two rounds of the Du Maurier Classic in Montreal - the last of the LPGA's four "major" championships. Her nearest challenger is Jenny Lidback, a Peruvian who has Swedish citizenship but lives in the United States, on 140 with the American Laurie Rinker-Graham a further two shots behind. Patty Sheehan, who led by five shots after a first-round 66, collapsed to a 77 and shares fourth place with fellow Americans Juli Inkster and Amy Benz, and Jane Crafter of Australia. The best placed British players are Pam Wright, Caroline Pierce and Kathryn Marshall on 147, 148 and 149 respectively. Laura Davies, the world No 1, is on 153 alongside Suzanne Strudwick.
