CHONAN, Chiba Pref. (Kyodo) Miho Koga shot a bogey-free 66 Saturday to move into a three-way tie for the lead with South Korea’s Lee Ji Hee and overnight leader Shiho Oyama after two rounds of the Itoen Ladies on Saturday.

Koga made three birdies in each half at Great Island Club and will start Sunday’s play at 8 under in the final threesome with money leader Lee, who fired a 67, and Oyama, who could only manage a 72 after shooting a career-low 64 in the first round.
