LPGA Q-School Stage 2, Round 2: Stephanie Na Goes Low

Stephanie Na fired a 66 in the 2nd round of the 2nd stage of LPGA Q-School to take a 1-shot lead on Junthima Gulyanamitta, a 2-shot lead on Lizette Salas, and a 3-shot lead on Hannah Yun and Ginger Howard.  On the other end of the leaderboard, many good golfers find themselves outside the magic top 70, including Danielle Kang, Brianna Do, Junko Nakada, Maria Laura Elvira, Katie Kempter, Lauren Doughtie, Kendall Dye, Esther Choe, Anya Sarai Alvarez, Jessica Yadloczky, and Bo Bea Park.  Meanwhile, 1st-round co-leader and amateur Alejandra Llaneza struggled, but stayed inside the top 25.
