Webb tied for third at Royal Liverpool

South Korean Jiyai Shin carded a flawless eight-under 64 to take a five-shot lead after the second round of the Women&aposs British Open, while Australian Karrie Webb remains in the hunt in a tie for third. With the second round restarted on Saturday after Friday&aposs high winds forced play to be abandoned, former world number one Shin shot the lowest round ever by a woman at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club to move to nine under overall and take command. The 24-year-old avoided any dropped shots in her second round and rolled in six birdies and an eagle during the stunning display. She leads compatriot Inbee Park, who managed a second-round 68 to claim outright second on four under. Webb, who struck an eagle, two birdies and a pair of bogeys in her two-under 70, sits a further shot behind alongside Japan&aposs Mika Miyazato. American Katie Futcher is another shot back after managing a second consecutive 71, while countrywoman Vicky Hurst is in a five-way tie for sixth on one under, where she is joined by Lydia Ko of New Zealand, Swede Carin Koch, Japan&aposs Ai Miyazato and Jenny Shin of South Korea. World number one Yani Tseng sits on even par after shooting a second straight 72. Both the third and fourth rounds are scheduled to be completed on Sunday. LIVE SCOREBOARD
