Question of the Day
AVONDALE, LA. (AP) - Lucas Glover made an 18-foot birdie putt on his final hole Friday to take a one-stroke lead over Boo Weekley after the second round of the Zurich Classic.
Glover, the 2009 U.S. Open winner, shot a 5-under 67 to reach 12 under at TPC Louisiana.
Weekley had a 68. He holed out with a wedge from 105 yards for an eagle on the par-4 10th, his first hole of the round.
D.A. Points was 10 under after a 68. Morgan Hoffmann was three strokes back at 9 under after a 69, and Ernie Els had a 69 to reach 8 under. Els lost a playoff to Jason Dufner last year in the event.
Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese amateur playing on a sponsor exemption, followed his opening 72 with a 69 finish at 3 under to make the cut. He tied for 58th two weeks ago 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.
Bubba Watson, the 2011 winner, rebounded from an opening 73 with a 65 to reach 6 under.
Dufner was 3 under after a 71.
NORTH TEXAS LPGA SHOOTOUT
IRVING, Texas (AP) _ Caroline Masson bogeyed three of her last four holes for an even-par 71, leaving her with a one-stroke lead after the second round of the inaugural North Texas LPGA Shootout.
The German player was 7 under overall at Las Colinas Country Club. She opened with a bogey-free 64 on Thursday. Spain’s Carlota Ciganda was second after a 70.
South Korea’s Inbee Park, the No. 1 women’s player in the world, was third at 5 under along with Moriya Jutanugarn, an 18-year-old LPGA Tour rookie from Thailand, and Kathleen Ekey.
Masson was 10 under and up by four strokes before her drive at No. 15 went left and rolled right across the sloping fairway into the water. She missed the fairway again at Nos. 16 and 18, with her first and seconds shots on the final hole both stopping behind trees.
