Azahara Munoz tied for the Lead in Taiwan

Azahara Munoz is looking to steal some of the headlines for herself in Taiwan this week, as the country and hometown favorite Yani Tseng host the Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship.

Munoz the 2010 LPGA Tour's rookie of the year is still looking for her first win on Tour.

After carding rounds of 71 and 66, the 23-year old Spaniard finds herself tied for the lead with Anna Nordqvist at seven-under par.

Her second round score of 66 is so far the best round of the tournament.

Munoz's round was a clean one with four birdies and an eagle to vault her to the top of the leader board through 36 holes.

After turning professional in 2009, Munoz does have one win as a pro, coming at the Madrid Ladies Masters in 2009 on the Ladies European Tour.

Munoz talked a little about her second round in her post round press conference.

"I shot much better than yesterday, but I actually didn't play that much better. I just had a really slow start yesterday. I was 3-over through 5 and then I played pretty good after that."

"It was rainy at times, but ti was never that bad. I don't think it really bothered play that much."

First round co-leaders Ai Miyazato and Yani Tseng struggled in round two, both shooting 73.

Although Munoz is not having the standout or follow up year to 2010 as many and herself would have thought. She finds herself in a very good position heading into moving day on Saturday in Round three.

If she keeps carding scores like she did in round two, she may be closer to earning her first win on the LPGA Tour.
