GOLF ROUNDUP

Reavie shoots 65-64 to lead Canadian Open

July 26, 2008|From the Associated Press

Chez Reavie left Mike Weir and the rest of the Canadian Open contenders behind on a long, sunny day at soggy Glen Abbey in Oakville.

Reavie was 13 under par for 33 holes Friday after opening the tournament Thursday with three pars. He finished the rain-delayed first round with a six-under 65 and had a 64 in the second to take a two-stroke lead over Eric Axley.

At 13-under 129, the 26-year-old PGA Tour rookie matched the tournament record for the first 36 holes set by Scott Dunlap in 1996 when Glen Abbey played to a par of 72.

Weir, one of 63 players left on the course when play was suspended, was even par in the second round with two holes to play, leaving the Canadian star seven strokes back at six under.

American Bruce Vaughan shot par 71 at Royal Troon in Scotland, taking a one-shot lead after the second round of the Senior British Open before heading for therapy on his troublesome left knee.

Vaughan, who has undergone three partial knee replacements over the last two years, has a 36-hole total of three-under 139. John Cook (71) is one stroke back.

Greg Norman shot a 72, including an eagle at the 16th, to finish eight strokes off the lead.

Helen Alfredsson shot a course-record nine-under 63 to pull to within a shot of leader Angela Park after the second round of the Evian Masters at Evian-les-Bains, France.

Park shot a 68 in her second straight bogey-free round, giving her a 10-under total of 134.

Five players are at eight under -- 2003 champion Juli Inkster, Cristie Kerr, In-Kyung Kim, Meena Lee and Candie Kung. First-round Lorena Ochoa is at six under after shooting a 73.
