SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Mo Martin has a plan for every golf course she plays, and it's working at Royal Birkdale.

The 31-year-old American is among the shortest hitters in women's golf, so she figured out the widest part of the fairways and keeps hitting them. It has produced 10 birdies in two days, a pair of 3-under 69s, and a three-shot lead going into the weekend at the Ricoh Women's British Open.
