Toledo-born Stacy Lewis has 11 birdies in 2nd Rio round


Stacy Lewis made 11 birdies and was atop the leaderboard in women's golf after an 8-under 63 at Olympic Golf Course.

Lewis made so many birdies she lost count. She wasn't aware of her score until she signed her card. The American was at 9-under 133 after two rounds and had a one-shot lead over Britain's Charley Hull. Several players, such as Inbee Park, were still on the course.

Marcus Fraser had a 63 last week in the opening round for the men.

Lewis, however, had a double bogey in her round when she three-putted the 14th from 25 feet. That made her determined to get the shots back, and she did just that by closing with four birdies. On the final hole, a tee shot in the face of a bunker left her 199 yards away for her third shot. She hit a hybrid to 4 feet for a surprise birdie.
