Charley Hull remains in contention for her second LPGA Tour title after moving into a four-way tie for the lead at the KEB Hana Bank Championship in Korea. 

Hull followed an opening-round 67 with a three-under 69 to join Danielle Kang and the world's top two players, Sung Hyun Park and Ariya Jutanugarn, on eight-under par.

The Englishwoman reached the turn in a one-shot lead after posting two birdies and an eagle over the opening seven holes, before bouncing back from back-to-back bogeys at the 11th and 12th to pick up a shot on her final hole of the day.

Jutanugarn posted a round-of-the-day 67 after seven birdies over her final 10 holes, while Park recovered from two early three-putts to make three late birdies and match her opening-day 68.

"Overall, it wasn't a bad round," Park said. "Those miscues stuck in my mind for a bit, but I was able to pick up a handful of birdies as well."

Kang matched Hull's 69 to also share top spot, with overnight-leader Nasa Hataoka and former world No 1 Lydia Ko two off the pace on six under.
