HOYLAKE, England (AP) -- Jiyai Shin opened a five-stroke lead in the Women's British Open, shooting an 8-under 64 on Saturday in the wind-delayed second round.

Coming off a playoff victory Monday in the Kingsmill Championship in Virginia, the 24-year-old South Korean player had a 9-under 135 total at Royal Liverpool. She won the 2008 event at Sunningdale.

South Korea's Inbee Park was second after a 68. Australia's Karrie Webb, the tournament winner in 1995, 1997 and 2002, was another stroke back along with Japan's Mika Miyazato. They shot 70.

Play was called off Friday because of high wind and the round was restarted Saturday. The final two rounds are set for Sunday.
