Golf roundup
*LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Justin Rose was still on the course and still atop the leaderboard when the sun went down Friday.
Rose, coming off a 12-under 60 on Thursday, was 17 under through 16 holes when the second round in the Funai Classic at Disney was suspended because of darkness. Clubhouse leader Tag Ridings was second, four strokes back after a 66.
Rose also had a four-shot lead when the round started following a 70-minute fog delay. The 26-year-old Englishman shot the 60 Thursday on the Palm Course, and was nearly as good Friday on the tougher Magnolia Course.
Ridings was at 13-under 131. Troy Matteson (65) was 12 under, and Robert Damron (65) and Marco Dawson (66) were another stroke behind.
*SAN ANTONIO -- Fred Funk got off to a fast start in his third career Champions Tour start, shooting a 6-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead in the AT & amp;T Championship.
The 50-year-old Funk, a seven-time winner on the PGA Tour who has made 24 of 28 cuts on the regular tour this year, had six birdies in his bogey-free round on the Oak Hills course. He tied for 11th in his two previous starts on the 50-and-over tour, the U.S. Senior Open and Senior Players Championship in July.
Scott Simpson, Dan Pohl and R.W. Eaks opened with 66s, Raymond Floyd, Tom McKnight, Mike McCullough, Lonnie Nielsen and Keith Fergus shot 67s, and Loren Roberts, Craig Stadler and Hale Irwin topped a group at 68.
Defending champion Jay Haas, coming off a victory in the rain-shortened Administaff Small Business Classic in Spring, had a 70. Haas, tied with Roberts for the tour lead with four wins, also won the PGA Tour's Texas Open in 1982 and 1993 at Oak Hills.
*CHONBURI, Thailand -- Americans Heather Young and Nicole Castrale shot 7-under 65s in hot conditions Friday to share the first-round lead in the Honda LPGA Thailand, the first of three straight LPGA Tour events in Asia.
Young, the 2005 Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic winner, had a bogey-free round on the Amata Spring Country Club course. She made a 35-foot birdie putt on No. 14, a 25-footer on No. 16 and closed with a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th.
Castrale, winless on the LPGA Tour, had eight birdies and a bogey.
South Korea's Meena Lee was a stroke back after a 66.
*SON SERVERA, Mallorca -- Sweden's Niclas Fasth and Ireland's Gary Murphy shot 1-over 71s share the lead after the second round of the Mallorca Classic.
Fasth and Murphy, who led after the first round with 66s, had 3-under 137 totals, one stroke ahead of Marc Warren (68) and two in front of Diego Borrego (68).
Sergio Garcia was three strokes back after his second straight 70.
Padraig Harrington shot a 74 and missed the cut, hurting his chances of winning the European Order of Merit. He finished at 11-over 151. Defending champion Jose Maria Olazabal (72) also missed the cut.
Champ-IRL merger not imminent
SURFERS PARADISE, Australia -- Champ Car series co-owner Kevin Kalkhoven dismissed the notion that the circuit and Indy Racing League are even remotely close to a merger.
In June, following a meeting between Kalkhoven and IRL founder Tony George, there were optimistic reports from Indianapolis that the two American-based open-wheel circuits might finally end their decade-long differences.
The IRL, which began in 1996 in competition with the CART series, split driver, team and fan loyalties, sinking television ratings and affecting sponsorships.
