DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn shot a 6-under 66 on Thursday to take a three-stroke lead after the second round of the LPGA Tour qualifying tournament.

The 18-year-old Jutanugarn had a 10-under total at LPGA International in the five-round event.

``Eight birdies,'' Jutanugarn said. ``I don't know how come. I'm serious.''

Lacey Agnew was second after a 67.

Two-time tour winner Christina Kim was third at 5 under after a 67. She is playing the qualifying tournament for the first time in her career.

``When I was younger, after I got my card on what is now the Symetra Tour, I had vowed that I would never have to go to Q- school,'' Kim said. ``And I would now say that no one should ever be that arrogant.

``But now that I'm here, it has a very unique atmosphere. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity that everyone should do at least once. Not at least, just once. Because it's different.''

The final top 20 will earn full tour status.
