Liu, who shot an opening-round 63, was 2-over par through five holes Saturday morning. She double bogeyed her first hole, No. 10, to drop to 6-under. From there, she has picked up four birdies, to go with one bogey, to get to 9-under.

Vivian Hou, who will tee off at 1:58 p.m., is currently tied for third place at 5-under par with Michelle Piyapattra and Roberta Liti.

There are two players at 4-under par and another seven players at 3-under par.

The field will be trimmed to the top 60 players plus ties at the end of 36 holes of play Saturday evening.
