Japan golfers take charge at U.S. Women's Open

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Mika and Ai Miyazato finished 1-2 after the second round of the U.S. Women's Open on Saturday before play was suspended because of thunderstorms in the area.

Mika Miyazato shot 4-under 67 to take the lead at 5-under 137 - one shot ahead of Ai Miyazato, who shot 68.

The 72-player field waited around for more than two hours before being sent home.

The Miyazatos, who are from Okinawa, Japan, but not related, will play together when the third round begins early Sunday. The USGA still hopes to finish Sunday despite another weather interruption.

Each day, lightning in the area has stopped play. On Thursday, the championship was suspended after dark clouds started collecting over the mountains around the Broadmoor.

On Friday, play was delayed for more than an hour.
