OCALA, Florida — Lydia Ko returned Friday morning for a 15-foot birdie putt to finish the second round of the Coates Golf Championship. Three putts later, she was out of the lead.

Ha Na Jang played her entire second round in the rain-delayed LPGA Tour event in frigid conditions for central Florida. Jang was steady with 15 pars, two birdies and a double bogey on the 13th hole. It added to an even-par 72 and a one-shot lead over Haru Nomura and Ko at the halfway point.

Nomura finished her 66 on Thursday in soft conditions before the storms arrived and suspended play. The three-putt bogey gave Ko another 69.

Jang was at 7-under 137.

The third round was scheduled for Friday afternoon, with the tournament ending on Saturday.
