NORTH TEXAS LPGA SHOOTOUT

IRVING, TEXAS

Meena Lee shot a season-best 64 that included a nine-hole stretch without a par and Caroline Masson had her second straight 67 to share the lead in the North Texas LPGA Shootout. At 8-under 134, Lee and Masson were stroke ahead of Texan Stacy Lewis and Natalie Gulbis. The 65 on Friday for Gulbis was her first sub-70 round this season, putting her in contention for her first victory in seven years. She is playing with an achy left wrist, and has an appointment with a specialist next week to finally figure out what is causing the pain. Lewis, the No. 3 player in the world, had a bogey-free 64 to match Lee for the best round of the day. Christina Kim was 6 under after a 69. First-round leader Suzann Pettersen had a 71 to drop three strokes back at 5 under. Top-ranked Inbee Park, the defending champion, was 3 under after a 68.

INSPERITY INVITATIONAL

THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS

Bernhard Langer birdied the final six holes for a share of the lead with Bart Bryant in the Champions Tour’s Insperity Invitational. Langer matched Bryant at 6-under 66 at The Woodlands Country Club. Langer won the 2007 event at Augusta Pines and successfully defended his title in 2008 at The Woodlands. The 56-year-old German player won the season-opening event in Hawaii for his 19th Champions Tour title and has 20 straight under-par rounds. Defending champion Esteban Toledo was a stroke back. Last year, he became the first Mexican winner in Champions Tour history, beating Mike Goodes with a par on the third hole of a playoff. Woodlands resident Jeff Maggert, Fred Funk and Joe Daley shot 68. Maggert won in Mississippi in March in his first start on the 50-and-over tour.

THE CHAMPIONSHIP AT LAGUNA NATIONAL

SINGAPORE

Thailand’s Panuphol Pittayarat birdied two of his last three holes to maintain a one-stroke lead after the second round of The Championship at Laguna National. Panuphol had a 4-under 68 for a two-round total of 13-under 131. American David Lipsky (68) was tied for second with Australia’s Scott Hend (65) and Chile’s Felipe Aguilar (67).
