WATERLOO, Ont. -- Shanshan Feng shot a second round of 6-under 65 Friday to move into a tie with defending champion Hee Young Park at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic.

Park's second round of 5-under 66 gave her the clubhouse lead at 11 under with several players still on the course at Grey Silo. But Feng caught up with a bogey-free round that included three birdies on the front nine and three on the back.

Michelle Wie, who entered the day tied for first with Park, was one stroke behind the leaders at 10 under after shooting 4-under 67 Friday.

Anna Nordqvist (64) was in fourth at 9 under, while Tour rookie Xi Yu Lin was at 8 under.

Inbee Park, ranked second on the Tour, was at 7 under after shooting a second round of 66, and top-ranked Stacey Lewis was at 4 under after a second straight 69.

Jennifer Kirby, from Paris, Ont., (70) and Sue Kim of Langley, B.C., (70) and 16-year-old Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., (71) were the top Canadians at 1 under.

Hamilton's Alena Sharp (69) was at even par, while Nicole Vandermade of Brantford, Ont., (68) was right on the projected cut line at 1 over.

Maude-Aimee Leblanc of Sherbrooke, Que., Erica Rivard of Tecumseh, Ont., Charlottetown's Lorie Kane and Toronto's Rebecca Lee-Bentham were all below the projected cut.
