Pavin, Langer tied at Senior British

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — American Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin shot 2-under 69 Friday, matching his first-round score, to share the lead after two rounds with Bernhard Langer at the Senior British Open.

Pavin and Langer (71) were at 4-under 138, one shot ahead of a quartet that includes Ian Woosnam (67) and Jay Haas (69).

Pavin was among the early starters and looked set to take a commanding lead before finishing with double-bogey 6 at No. 18 after hitting his second shot out of bounds.

Langer dealt with a biting cold wind later in the day but also got to 6 under before bogeys on two of the par-3 holes.

The German has 10 wins in three years on the Champions Tour but is still looking for his first victory in a senior major.

"I could have putted a bit better," Langer said. "The ball did not drop for me like it did in the first round."

Americans Dan Forsman (71) and Larry Mize (70) were also tied for second.

PGA: St. George's Golf and Country Club is a straightforward course.

"If you're driving the ball on the fairway, you can score," Canadian star Mike Weir said after missing the cut in the Canadian Open in Toronto. "If you're hitting it where I was, you can't. You can't score from the rough."

Tim Clark proved that the course could be conquered, shooting bogey-free 6-under 64.

"Driving the fairway is a huge key on the course and I've done that," said Clark, tied for the lead with Dean Wilson at 10 under.

Wilson had his second straight 65 to match Clark, the South African who won the Players Championship in May for his first PGA Tour title. Wilson closed with a 20-foot par putt on the par-4 18th after missing the fairway.

"That was a nice way to finish off the day," Wilson said. "You can't ask for a better position."

Brent Delahoussaye and Steve Wheatcroft were a stroke back. Delahoussaye had 69 a day after matching the Canadian Open record with 62.

LPGA: Mika Miyazato shot 5-under 67 for the second-round lead at the Evian Masters in Evian-Les-Bains, France. Miyazato was at 9-under 135, one shot better than Gwladys Nocer. First-round co-leader Morgan Pressel shot par 72 to remain at 6 under. Seminole's Brittany Lincicome (73) was at 1-under 143, tied for 24th. Michelle Wie (77) had quintuple bogey on the 10th hole, falling to 1-over 145.

AMATEURs: Jim Liu, 14, of Smithtown, N.Y., and Justin Thomas, 17, of Goshen, Ky., won two matches apiece to advance to today's title match of the U.S. Junior Championship in Ada, Mich. … Doris Chen, 17, of Bradenton and Katelyn Dambaugh, 14, of Goose Creek, S.C., meet today in the final of the U.S. Girls Junior Championship.
