EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France — Ai Miyazato of Japan shot a 6-under 66 to share the second-round lead at the Evian Masters, where Michelle Wie was eight shots back after a 70.

Miyazato was at 9-under 135 with joint first-round leader Na Yeon Choi of South Korea (68) and Becky Brewerton of Wales, who bogeyed the 16th and 17th to shoot 68 on Friday.

In-Kyung Kim of South Korea, the other first-round co-leader, was a shot back in fourth.

Despite a double bogey on the fourth, Wie hit five birdies in her round of 70 to give her a chance of gaining points for a place on the U.S. Solheim Cup team for next month’s matchup against Europe.

Brewerton is vying for a place on Europe’s team after her rookie appearance two years ago.
