Most eyes at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois on Friday were on 15-year-old Michelle Wie, who is hoping to become the first female to make the cut at a PGA Tour event for 60 years. American JL Lewis fired a six-under 65 to grab the lead midway through the second round.

Wie, yet to start her second round, is looking to emulate Babe Zaharias, who made the cut at the 1945 Tucson Open.

Hawaiian Wie, who can also secure the last qualifying spot for next week's British Open at St Andrews by finishing as the highest non-exempt player, hit a one-under 70 on Thursday but needs another strong showing to make the projected two-under-par cut mark.

Lewis, a journeyman professional with two career wins in 16 seasons on tour, mixed two bogeys with six birdies and an eagle to finish 13 under on 129.

Overnight leader Hunter Mahan of the United States and Japan's Shigeki Maruyama were two strokes adrift on 131.
