Thai Ariya Jutanugarn is holding her lead at the Ricoh British Open by two shots from Mirim Lee.
25-year old Mirim Lee from South Korea was one shot ahead of Shanshan Fen after day two of the Ricoh British Open.
On day one Mirim shot a record 10 under par 62, which consisted of an incredible 13 birdies and 2 bogeys.
Lee, whose 62 also equalled the record for the lowest round at a Women's British Open, commented after the first round: "Today was great, but it is only the first round."
Day two saw Mirim shoot a more down to earth one under 71, which allowed Shanshan Feng to come up on the ropes, and trail her by a single shot after an opening 66, followed by a 68.
Lee recovered from an early dropped shot in her third round, but steadied the ship with a succession of 4 birdies to sit 2 shots back of the leader Ariya Jutanugran through 15.
