BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Cristie Kerr strung together three birdies on the front nine in a round of 1-under 70 to take a one-stroke lead over Paula Creamer after two rounds of the U.S. Women's Open.

Kerr, the 2007 Women's Open champ, had one of only six rounds under par on the tough Saucon Valley Country Club layout today, offsetting four bogeys with five birdies. She stands at 3-under 139.

Creamer, looking for her first Women's Open title, carded 3-under 68 after an opening 72 and was alone in second at 2-under 140.
