- Alena Sharp posted her second straight 66 on Friday to join Lexi Thompson and Kim Hyo-Joo in a three-way tie for the lead at the LPGA ManuLife Classic in Canada. Sharp, whose hometown of Hamilton is just 45 minutes from Whistle Bear in Cambridge, Ontario, bounced back from an early double-bogey with six birdies and an eagle in a six-under effort that took her to 12-under 132. South Korea's Kim posted a 67 and Lexi Thompson fired a seven-under 65 to join the leading trio on a day when France's Perrine Delacour lit-up Whistle Bear with a 10-under par 62. That put Delacour one off the pace on 133, alongside American Lindy Duncan (65), and South Korean Chun In-Gee (66).
