(AP) HAINAN ISLAND, China - HAINAN ISLAND, China (AP) — American Jessica Korda rebounded from an opening double bogey for a share of the lead Saturday in the Blue Bay LPGA.

Korda made seven birdies in a 14-hole stretch — the last three on Nos. 14-16 — and shot a 5-under 67 to match South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace at 11-under 133. Pace had a 66.

Rain washed out play Friday and forced officials to cut the event from 72 to 54 holes.

Korda, the first-round leader Thursday after a 66, has two LPGA Tour victories this year. Pace, winless on the LPGA Tour, is coming off a playoff victory last week in the South African Women's Open.

South Korea's Chella Choi was 10 under after a 66.

Americans Michelle Wie and Brittany Lang and China's Shanshan Feng were 9 under.
