Hull and Hall sat all square with Wei-Ling Hsu and Teresa Lu through 12. Hull’s birdie at the par-3 13th pulled England to a 1-up advantage, and they went 2 up when Hall birdied the par-4 16th. Host country Republic of Korea is second with six points, followed by Australia with three points and Chinese Taipei with zero points.

The United States leads Pool B with six points, on the strength of a second-round sweep from Cristie Kerr/Lexi Thompson and Jessica Korda/Michelle Wie over Team Thailand. Kerr and Thompson’s 4-and-3 win brings them to 10-1-2 all-time in UL International Crown and Solheim Cup competition. Sweden sits in second with four points, while Japan and Thailand are tied for third with three points apiece.

The second round was played nearly entirely in rain moving into the Incheon region ahead of Typhoon Kong-Rey. Tropical moisture is expected to hit Incheon tonight and into Saturday, causing the third round originally scheduled for Saturday to be moved up to Friday afternoon.
