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.

"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.
