Australian Hannah Green pitched in from 60 yards to save par early in her second round en route to a four-shot clubhouse lead at the Women's PGA Championship in Chaska, Minnesota on Friday.
Green stands at stands at 7-under 137, followed by 10-time LPGA victor Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand, who shot 70 to finish alone in second at 4-under 140.
The unlikely save at her third hole, the par-four 12th, came after she had hit her second shot into a penalty area that she barely knew existed at Hazeltine National Golf Club. Friday was even better.
Green, meanwhile, got just about everything wrong except what mattered: Her score.

"Really tough bunker shot", she said.
"When it went in, I just laughed", she said of the lucky break. I'm hoping to get myself in contention and see what it's like with him standing next to you.Читайте также: Copa America: Messi penalty saves Argentina point, Colombia wins
"When I had more time to wait between shots that's when I started to feel the nerves", said Green, who three-putted for bogey on 18. I was actually really exhausted once I got home, which is good.
"I actually didn't even notice the hazard yesterday", the 22-year-old from Perth said. We're always going to go up and down. "Luckily there was a staff member from the course coming out with towels, otherwise I don't know if I would have been able to keep hold of the club".
It was long enough that Ariya Jutanugarn not only carried a driver for the first time all year, she hit it - twice. Second-ranked Lexi Thompson shot 71 and is tied for seventh at 1 under.
Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., was in a group tied for 84th at 4-over 76, and Hamilton's Alena Sharp was also in a group tied for 102nd at 5-over 77.
Webb, who has scaled back her tournament schedule for the past few years, missed the cut after a two-day total of 6-over 150.
"Even on the worse day, it's still great being out here", said Wie, who had been out the past two months due to a wrist injury. "I'm just trying to make birdies and avoid bogeys".
"I was overly optimistic about how I could play this week and the status of my wrist", she said.
