Ilhee said her goal each day was to aim for 3-under and said she has surpassed her own expectations the first two days; “I tried to do exactly the same thing as yesterday. So my goal was 3 under par today. Then, yeah, I putted good and made more, so it was fun.I did mistakes a lot, actually, I missed shots a little bit, but the putt was good, so I saved a lot.  Lexi Thompson completed her second round with a -8 under par 63, a round that included seven birdies, an Eagle and one bogey, giving her a tournament total of -12 under par. Lexi spoke about her focus, and having some teeth pulled out when coming back from a break in Florida; " It was all about momentum, on the back nine I made a few birdies and then I had that eagle, so I pretty much just had it going my way. I just tried to keep confident out there. Focused on one shot at a time. I actually got my wisdom teeth out the week I got back, so I had to take a whole week off pretty much, but I definitely needed a break. I figured I'd go home, relax and practice up for these last few events of the year. I came into this week feeling ready and just confident about it.” Shanshan Feng  is in solo third and three shots back at -10 under par. Shanshan was amused at having the same pairings as the first round, and had a plan to get the same gain in the third round; “Well, it was kind of interesting because we got the same pairings, exactly same pairings as yesterday. So this morning I saw I.K.'s caddie, Johnny, and we were talking. We say maybe we want to play again tomorrow. So I said let's meet at 10 under, but I think because Johnny didn't tell I.K., so she didn't know. But we still have a chance to play together tomorrow.” American Paula Creamer and South Korea’s I.K. Kim are at -9 under-par and in a tie for fourth. Amy Yang set a new tournament record for 18 holes after she finished Friday’s second round with a -9 under par 62 on the East Course at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Her magical round included 10 birdies and one bogey and was her career-low score by two shots and her best round this season by four strokes. That round jumped Amy from tied 48th at the start of the day into a tie for sixth at -8 under par; " I would say it was a great round, you know., first of all, it was a great round. But I've shot 10 under before, but it was the Mini Tour, but this is my best on the LPGA Tour, and it feels great.”
