July 20, 2002|From Associated Press

Australia's Paul Gow shot a six-under-par 66 to take the clubhouse lead in the second round of the B.C. Open at Endicott, N.Y.

Gow had a two-round total of 11-under 139 on the En-Joie Golf Club course, where lightning and rain around midday forced a delay of nearly 4 hours 15 minutes.

When play resumed, Shaun Micheel went out in a blazing five-under 32 for the front nine and was 11 under through 15 holes when darkness stopped play for the day.

Kelly Robbins had two eagles in an eight-under 64 for a share of the lead with Beth Bader in the rain-delayed first round of the Giant Eagle LPGA Classic at Vienna, Ohio.

Robbins holed a bunker shot on the par-five No. 5, then hit driver and three-wood to four feet for another eagle at the par-five No. 8. Bader had 10 birdies and two bogeys for the best score of her career. The 64s were the lowest competitive rounds ever shot at Squaw Creek Country Club.

Ted Goin, winless in two seasons on the Senior PGA Tour, shot a bogey-free six-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the SBC Senior Open at Chicago.

Three-time champion Hale Irwin, Roy Vucinich, Bob Eastwood and Tom Wargo opened with 67s.

Lee Williamson and Ryan Moore each won two matches to advance to the final of the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship at Washington Township, Mich. The winner will receive a spot in the 2003 Masters, if he remains an amateur.
