Jason Dufner moved into position for yet another bid to win his first PGA Tour title, shooting a 7-under 65 on Friday to take the second-round lead in the Zurich Classic at Avondale, La.
Dufner lost a playoff to Keegan Bradley last year in the PGA Championship for one of his three runner-up finishes in 163 winless starts on the PGA Tour. He capped his bogey-free round with a 30-foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th to reach 12-under at TPC Louisiana.
Russell Knox, John Rollins and Ken Duke were tied for second. Knox shot 64, Rollins 66, and Duke 68. Greg Chalmers holed out from 137 yards for an eagle on the par-4 first hole and finished with a 64 to join Steve Stricker and Ernie Els at 10 under.
Lewis leads Mobile Bay LPGA Classic: At Mobile, Ala., ex-Arkansas standout Stacy Lewis birdied five of her final nine holes for a 5-under 67 and a one-stroke lead after the second round of the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic.
Former Oklahoma State player Karin Sjodin tied the tournament course record with a 64 to finish a stroke back along with Lindsey Wright, So Yeon Ryu and rookie Sydnee Michaels. Ryu shot 67, Michaels 68, and Wright 69.
Wiesberger on top at Ballantine's Championship: At Seoul, South Korea, Austria's Bernd Wiesberger shot a course-record 7-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead over Australia's Marcus Fraser after the second round of the Ballantine's Championship.
