WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Hee Young Park topped the leaderboard at 8 under Friday in the suspended second round of the Kingsmill Championship.

The South Korean player, fighting a lingering wrist injury, shot a 3-under 68 to take a one-stroke lead over Stacy Lewis, Brittany Lang, Lexi Thompson, Azahara Munoz and Lizette Salas.

"Last week I rested like whole week, so I can I think more focus on the course and I'm ready," said Park, a two-time winner on the LPGA Tour. "Yesterday more hard ground, so a bit tough to hit solid, hit the ball. But today more soft fairway, everything, so it helped a lot. So more comfortable today. A lot of ice, good food, good sleep."

The second-ranked Lewis, in position to take the top spot in the world ranking from Inbee Park, had a 65.

"Definitely have a better feeling coming off the course today," Lewis said. "Just feel like I played a lot more solid, hit the ball better, definitely had more control going into the greens. I think less wind helped there. Just stayed really patient and made a few putts, and added up to a pretty good score."

Lang finished with a 68.

"I've been playing really well and working really hard just trying to be confident out there and committed to my shots," Lang said. "Working on a few things, so good first two days."

Thompson, Munoz and Salas were unable to finish the round because of darkness after the start of play was delayed 3
