Question of the Day
AVONDALE, LA. (AP) - Ricky Barnes birdied six of the last eight holes Thursday at rain-softened TPC Louisiana to take a one-stroke lead in the Zurich Classic.
Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese amateur playing on a sponsor exemption, opened with an even-par 72, highlighted by a 5-wood that he hit to a foot on the par-3 17th. He tied for 58th in the Masters after becoming the youngest player to make the cut at Augusta National, and said Thursday that he will play in a U.S. Open qualifier in two weeks in Dallas.
Defending champion Jason Dufner shot 70, and 2011 winner Bubba Watson had a 73.
NORTH TEXAS LPGA SHOOTOUT
Inbee Park, the No. 1 women’s player in the world, was in a group at 67.
While Masson has made only one of five cuts in her first LPGA season, the 23-year-old German played on the Ladies European Tour the last three years and won the 2012 South African Women’s Open. She closed with a curling putt from about 18 feet on the ninth hole, her longest birdie putt of the day.
Ciganda, from Spain, was the top rookie and top money winner on the European tour last year.
Taylor Coleman, a 16-year-old high school sophomore from San Antonio, shot 68.
Second-ranked Stacy Lewis, from The Woodlands near Houston, had a 72.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) _ France’s Jean-Baptiste Gonnet, Sweden’s Johan Edfors, Australia’s Kieran Pratt, South Korea’s Kim Gi-whan and England’s Matthew Baldwin shot 5-under 67 to share the lead in the suspended first round of the fog-delayed Ballantine’s Championship.
South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen was a stroke back with two holes left when darkness forced the suspension of play on the Blackstone course. The tournament is sanctioned by the European and Asian tours.
