Question of the Day
PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Fred Couples roared through his first 11 holes in the second round of the Senior Players Championship, ripping off seven birdies at water-logged Fox Chapel to take the lead at 11 under.
Then the weather managed to do what the defenseless course could not, stopping the Hall of Famer with a sudden downpour that suspended play for the day with most of the field still on the course.
First-round leader John Huston was two shots back at 9 under after making an eagle from the rough on the par-4 15th just before the horn sounded. It was Huston’s second eagle in two days on a par 4. He eagled No. 7 on Thursday when he drove the green and made a 25-footer.
MAYNOOTH, Ireland (AP) _ American Peter Uihlein and England’s Robert Rock shared the second-round lead in the Irish Open, while Rory McIlroy missed the cut in his final tournament before the British Open.
Uihlein, the former Oklahoma State player who won the Madeira Islands Open last month, had a 4-under 68 to match Rock (66) at 9-under 135 at Carton House.
The second-ranked McIlroy, from Northern Ireland, shot a 72 to finish at 2 over, missing the cut by two shots. Countrymen Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke and Ireland’s Padraig Harrington also failed to advance.
