Associated Press

Beth Daniel shot 4-under-par 68 Friday to open a 2-stroke advantage over Chris Johnson midway through the Ladies Professional Golf Assn. Oldsmobile tournament.

The second-round leader had 6 birdies and 2 bogeys on the par-72, 6,333-yard Stonebridge Golf and Country Club course and finished with a 36-hole total of 7-under 137.

Johnson, coming off a disappointing season in which she won only $46,219, shot a 69, with 4 birdies and a bogey, that left her at 139. Five others trailed Daniel by 3 strokes, including defending champion Nancy Lopez and first-round leader Dot Germain.

Daniel, once a dominant player, hasn’t won an official LPGA Tour event since 1985, when she notched her 14th career victory in the Inamori tournament.

Joining Germain at 140 were Lopez, Susie Redman, Martha Nause and Jody Rosenthal.
