Highlights - Matthew delighted with hole-in-one

Scotland's Catriona Matthew hit a hole in one in a five-under 67 to share the second-round lead with Giulia Sergas of Italy at the Women's British Open.

Sergas also shot a 67 at Lytham, including five birdies on the back nine, for a five-under total of 141.

Yuko Mitsuka of Japan (71) was a shot back in third.

Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa is eight over after a 77, while Cristie Kerr, the American leader of the LPGA money list, is three over after a 71.

Kerr jarred her wrist playing out of a divot at the sixth and went for treatment after her round.

Matthew eagled the 11th and followed up with an ace on the 12th. She then made four more birdies against a lone bogey as she came home in 30.

"It was certainly easier than yesterday," Matthew said, referring to the wind dying down. "This was one of my best nines. It may have been easier but you still have to make shots.»"

First-round leader Sandra Gal of Germany carded an 80 to drop back to five over, still five shots inside the cut.

American Paula Creamer, still looking for her first major win, carded a 74 to go into the weekend seven shots off the lead, while Michelle Wie is one shot back after a 76.

England's four-time major winner Laura Davis just made the cut after a second-round 74 left her nine over, while Welshwoman Becky Morgan is two shots better after a second-round 71.
