SHIMA, Japan (AP) — Japan's Mamiko Higa, Yuki Ichinose and Shiho Oyama shared the second-round lead Saturday in the Mizuno Classic, the final tournament in the LPGA Tour's five-event Asian swing.

Higa and Ichinose shot 6-under 66 to match Oyama at 8 under at Kintetsu Kashikojima in the event also sanctioned by the Japan LPGA Tour. Oyama, the first-round leader, had her second straight 68.

American Brittany Lincicome and Japan's Asako Fujimoto were a stroke back. Lincicome had a 68, and Fujimoto shot 67.

Defending champion Stacy Lewis was 5 under after a 68. The American overcame a seven-stroke deficit in the final round last year, birdieing the last three holes for a 64 and a one-shot victory. She's the top-ranked player in the field at No. 3 and has three victories this year.
