Morgan Pressel shot 2-under 70 on Saturday and grabbed a 2-stroke lead through the second round of the LPGA Championship.
Pressel, who is seeking her first LPGA Tour win since 2008, finished 36 holes at soggy Locust Hill Country Club at 6-under-par 138.
She will have to overcome a marathon Sunday if she wants to secure her second major title, as a rainout on Thursday forced officials to adjust the schedule. Eighteen holes were played both Friday and Saturday and 36 holes are on the docket for Sunday.
World No. 1 Inbee Park fired a 4-under 68 on Saturday and jumped into a share of second place with first-round leader Chella Choi, who shot 73. The former won the season's first major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship, in April and will have three of the four legs of the career Grand Slam if she triumphs this week.
World No. 9 Jiyai Shin (73), Amy Yang (70) and Sarah Jane Smith (69) share fourth place at 3-under, while world No. 3 Na Yeon Choi (70), Brittany Lincicome (73), Angela Stanford (71), Catriona Matthew (71) and Sun Young Yoo (69) share seventh at minus-2.
Defending champion Shanshan Feng (70) is tied for 14th at even par, while Stacy Lewis, ranked second in the world, sits a 2-over after rounds of 74 and 72.
