Waterloo, ON (Sports Network) - Catriona Matthew fired a 7-under 64 on Friday to grab a 3-stroke lead after two rounds of the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic.

Matthew finished 36 holes at 15-under-par 127 at Grey Silo Golf Course. She smashed the 1-year-old tournament record that Inbee Park set last year. That old record was 133.

Angela Stanford, who shared the first-round lead with Matthew, posted a 4- under 67 and is alone in second at minus-12.

Anna Nordqvist matched Matthew's 64 and that helped Nordqvist jump into a share of third at 11-under-par 131. She was joined there by Meena Lee and Belen Mozo, who both carded 66s on Friday, as well as Chella Choi and Ryann O'Toole, who both posted 65s in round two.

Park managed a 4-under 67 to move into a share of eighth place at minus-10. She stands alongside Suzann Pettersen (64), Hee Young Park (67) and Austin Ernst (64).
