BELMONT, Michigan (Greg Johnson/AP) — Inbee Park found a new putter — and her old touch.

The South Korean player took the second-round lead in the Meijer LPGA Classic, birdieing her first three holes en route to her second straight 5-under 66.

The third-ranked Park finished on the front nine, adding birdies on the par-5 fifth and eighth holes in her bogey-free round at Blythefield Country Club. She won six times last year and took the Manulife Financial in June in Canada for her 10th LPGA Tour title.

SYLVANIA, Ohio (Rusty Miller/AP) — Now that she's officially a millionaire, Lydia Ko joked she'll have to keep a closer watch on where her paychecks go.

"I'll probably see that going into my mom's account," she said with a laugh, referring to the $210,000 she got for winning Sunday's Marathon Classic.

The 17-year-old broke free from a late tie with So Yeon Ryu, hitting a wedge to 4 feet for birdie on the 72nd hole to take the lead. Then she tried in vain — she's just 5-foot-5 — to see past the large gallery at 18 as Ryu missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff.

SOUTHPORT, England (Doug Ferguson/AP) — As much as Michelle Wie prefers to look forward, this is one week when it's tempting to get caught up in the past.

That could include her recent tour of New York as the U.S. Women's Open champion or a decade ago when the teen prodigy from Hawaii got her first taste of links golf along the Lancashire coast of England.

Both are relevant memories this week at the Ricoh Women's British Open.
