Kim's 36-hole total was a tournament record, four strokes better than Australian Katherine Kirk's halfway total en route to victory last year.

It matches the lowest 36-hole total on the LPGA Tour this year.

Kim teed off on the 10th hole on the par-72 course in Oneida, Wisconsin, and birdied her first four holes.

``First hole, my second shot was almost a tap-in birdie, so (I) started really solid,`` said Kim, who is seeking a seventh LPGA title. ``After that, every hole I made really close to the pin. So I had a lot of birdie opportunities and I putted really well today.``

After a brace of birdies at 15 and 16, Kim stumbled with a double bogey at the par-three 17th, but strung together three more birdies on her inward run.

She was four strokes in front of China's Liu Yu, who posted a career-best score of nine-under par 63 for a total of 132.

It was a further stroke back to South Koreans Amy Yang and Chun In-gee, overnight leader Kirk and Americans Mariah Stackhouse and Emma Talley.

Kirk had led by one after a first-round 62, but she couldn't get it going on the greens Friday and settled for a 71.

The Australian veteran hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation but needed 33 putts and made just two birdies.

``Front nine, I just couldn't get one to drop, and back nine, hit lots of good putts and, again, nothing happened,`` Kirk said. ``Overall, I'm happy with how today went. I was very patient. I hit a lot of greens. That's all you can do.``

Liu, seeking her first LPGA win, rolled in a 15-foot eagle putt at the par-five third that she said ``kind of got me going.``

``It doesn't feel too dramatic actually,`` said Liu, who added seven birdies in a bogey-free round.

``I wasn't hitting it too spectacular, but I was rolling a lot of putts in. So that was the major difference today than yesterday,`` added the rookie, whose best LPGA finish was a third-place at the weather-shortened Texas Classic.
