Bad light has stopped the second round's play this week on the LPGA Tour, with Lydia Ko tied for 25th.

Ko, who shot 70 on day one, was through 12 holes of her second round at the Kingsmill Championship in Williamsburg, Virginia - six shots off the lead on two-under par - when play was halted.

The world number three began the day at Kingsmill Resort in a tie for 29th but has managed to gain a little ground on the field so far with a solitary birdie on the seventh hole.

Korea's Hee Young Park, who was one of the few players to complete her second round today, leads by one stroke on eight-under par after back-to-back rounds of 68.

Park is one shot clear of five players in second, including in-form Americans Stacy Lewis and Lexi Thompson.

Lewis, who like Ko began the day tied for 29th, shot an impressive 65 today to zoom up the standings.

Colombia's Mariajo Uribe also carded 65 to be the biggest mover of the day, rising from tied for 62nd to a share of seventh.
