Angela Stanford shot a 1-under 71 on Friday for a share of the lead with Song-Hee Kim after the second round of the HSBC Champions.
Stanford, the former TCU star who has four LPGA Tour victories, and Kim (70) had 5-under 139 totals on Tanah Merah's Garden Course.
Hall of Famer Juli Inkster (70) was a stroke back along with Ai Miyazato (71), Suzann Pettersen (70), Hee-Won Han (67) and Sun Young Yoo (70). Last week in the season-opening LPGA Thailand, Miyazato rallied to beat Pettersen by a stroke.
Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa, tied for the first-round lead after a 68, had a 7-over 79 to drop eight strokes back at 3 over. She had four bogeys and a triple bogey on the par-4 18th. The Mexican star won the inaugural tournament in 2008.
Defending champion Jiyai Shin was 2 under after her second straight 71, and Michelle Wie was 1 over after a 73.
