Lewis keeps Evian lead

EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France — Stacy Lewis shot 3-under 69 to stay in the lead after the second round of the Evian Masters on Friday, one ahead of Ilhee Lee.

Lewis sat at 12-under 132 a day after shooting 63 in an opening round that included nine birdies.

"(Friday) was a little bit of a struggle for me," said Lewis, who birdied No. 4 and eagled No. 7 but bogeyed Nos. 12 and 14. "It's hard when you make pars and you feel like you're going backward because of all the birdies I made (Thursday)."

Lee had four straight birdies on the back nine to shoot 67.

Cheyenne Woods, 23, niece of Tiger Woods playing in her third LPGA Tour event, shot 69 to make her first cut.

"I was hitting the ball really well," she said. "Still didn't make a few putts here and there. But overall, I was very happy with my game."

Hallberg's 63 puts him atop Senior British

TURNBERRY, Scotland — Gary Hallberg made eight birdies as winds reached 25 mph during the second round to shoot 7-under 63 and take a three-stroke lead at the Senior British Open.

"I played aggressively and had some great putts go in," Hallberg said. "But I started to choke a bit near the end and left putts at 15, 16 and 18 short."

First-round leader Bernhard Langer shot 73, including triple bogey 7 at No. 13, and was tied for second with Tom Lehman.

Said Langer: "Shooting 7 under is like 10 or 11 under on a decent day."

PGA: William McGirt shot 4-under 66 to share the second-round lead with Scott Piercy at the Canadian Open in Ancaster, Ontario. Piercy followed his 8-under 62 with a 67 to reach 11-under 129, matching the tournament 36-hole record. The biggest shot by McGirt, winless on the tour, was a 50-foot birdie at No. 8. Robert Garrigus (66) and Bo Van Pelt (66) were two back. Tim Clark had six birdies and an eagle to tie the course record of 62 and sit three back. British Open champ Ernie Els missed the cut with rounds of 72 and 70.
