In Gee Chun, who won the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in June, carded a 5-under 66 on Friday to climb to the top of the leaderboard at the AIG Women’s Open.

Chun has won four times on the LPGA Tour – at the 2018 LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship and major wins at the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open, the 2016 Amundi Evian Championship and the 2022 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. A win on Sunday would make her the eighth player in LPGA Tour history to earn the Career Grand Slam, winning four different majors available in her career.

“We have a big wind out there, but I have great reason why to love the Scottish now because my ball was sit on the edge of the hole today, and after like three seconds it dropped in,” said Chun. “Now I can enjoy more like Scottish greens.”

This is the third time she has held the 36-hole lead or co-lead in a major and she went on to win two of those, including earlier this summer.

“I know golf is a scoring game, not the shot game. So I just trust what I thought and what I think, just make a good focus on the course and trying to be positive way, because I trust golf is the scoring game.”

South Africa’s Ashleigh Buhai and Sweden’s Madelene Sagstrom are tied for second at 7-under after both scoring 65.

Seven-time major winner Inbee Park of South Korea, the 2015 AIG Women’s Open, lies in fourth place at 6-under after carding a 67. Park has had three top-10s this year but has missed her last two cuts.

Hannah Green of Australia (66) and Miyu Yamashita of Japan (68) are tied in fifth place at 5-under.

2019 champion Hinako Shibuno, who held the overnight lead, shot a 2-over 73 on Friday to move back into a share of seventh place at 4-under
