Dustin Johnson ties for second-round lead in Canada

OAKVILLE, Ontario — Dustin Johnson started and finished the day tied with Luke List for the Canadian Open lead. The U.S. Open champion had to make up a lot of ground to do it.

Johnson had a double bogey and two bogeys on his first holes Friday in windy conditions at Glen Abbey. He rebounded with six birdies and had a late bogey in 1-under 71 to move to 7-under 137.

"I really don't know what happened the first four holes," he said. "Just got off to a bad start. Hit it in a couple awkward spots. Made some bad bogeys but fought back and turned it around and felt like I played really nicely from 14 on in."

Johnson played in the morning after eagling the par-5 18th late Thursday for 66.

List also shot 71, birdieing the par-5 16th and 18th after making three bogeys in a four-hole stretch early on the back nine.

Canadian amateur Jared du Toit, former Arizona State teammate Jon Rahm and Kelly Kraft were a stroke back, also each shooting 71.

Top-ranked defending champion Jason Day was 1 over, following his opening 69 with 76.

SENIOR BRITISH OPEN: Joe Durant birdied the par-4 18th for 3-under 68 and a share of the lead with Kohki Idoki (67) at 7-under 137 in Carnoustie, Scotland. Olin Browne (66), Jesper Parnevik (68), Carlos Franco (69), Tom Byrum (69) and Peter Fowler (69) were a stroke back, Mark O'Meara (70) topped the group at 5 under. First-round leader Woody Austin shot 74 to drop into a tie for 18th at 2-under 142.

LPGA: Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr helped the United States rebound in the International Crown in Gurnee, Ill., and Melissa Reid had a gutsy effort for England after her ill partner was sidelined. Thompson and Kerr routed Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn and Porani Chutichai 4 and 3 for the Americans' first two points after they were shut out in the first session. With Charley Hull sidelined by a fever and complications from asthma, Reid was all alone for her four-ball match against Japan's Haru Nomara and Mika Miyazato. Reid took it all the way to 18, where Nomura made a matching birdie to close out a 1-up win. England leads Pool B with five points. Thailand and Japan were tied for second at four, and the United States was last with three. Taiwan tops Pool A with six points, followed by South Korea (four) and Australia and China (three each).

AMERICAN CENTURY CHAMPIONSHIP: Actor Jack Wagner had five birdies in a 27-point round to take a three-point lead in the modified Stableford event over former hockey player Mike Modano at Edgewood Tahoe in Stateline, Nev. Wagner, 56, won the celebrity event in 2006 and 2011. Former NBA star Charles Barkley was last in the 84-player field at minus-36.

    Thursday was an off-day for the Rays, who are coming off a solid western swing. I assume there was no rest for the tag-team Rays baseball brain trust of Matt Silverman, Erik Neander and Chaim Bloom, whose job it is to improve this team in advance of the trade deadline. They've done a good job …
