ON THE FAIRWAYS \ Friday’s other events
MILWAUKEE — First-round leader Richard S. Johnson shot 3-under par 67 and Nick Flanagan had a 7-under 63 to share the second-round lead at 10-under at the U.S. Bank Championship over the 6,579-yard Brown Deer Park Golf Course. Kent Jones and Gavin Coles were tied for third a shot back of the leaders. Jones shot 65 and Coles, of Australia, had the low round of the tournament at 62, one shy of the course record. Another stroke back at 132 were Troy Matteson and Ken Duke, who both shot 65.
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Christina Kim’s second-round 68 at the State Farm Classic looked ordinary compared to her opening 63, but it included a birdie putt on her last hole that gave her a one-stroke lead over the charging Michelle Wie and three others. Kim was the first-day leader, but said Friday was, by comparison, a fight. She bogeyed the par-5 sixth hole and saved par on her opening hole only after finding the green with her second shot from behind a line of trees well off the fairway. Right behind her is the 18-year-old Wie, playing easily her best golf of the year while shooting a 65 that pulled her to 12 under for the tournament.
BLAINE, Minn. — Dana Quigley shot a tournament-record 10-under 62 and leads after the first round of the 3M Championship. Gene Jones shot a season-best 64, and is two shots back. Jeff Sluman birdied four of his last five holes to join R.W. Eaks at 7 under.
