Armour holds slim lead in Texas



By The Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO - Tommy Armour III capped a 62 with a birdie on the 18th hole Friday and held a one-stroke lead over Dan Forsman after the second round of the Texas Open.

Armour's 14-under 126 on the La Cantera Golf Club course was the lowest two-round score on the PGA Tour this year.

Forsman's second-round 63 included three tee shots on his final hole. He was one shot in front of Tim Clark (63).

K.J. Choi (62), Tom Lehman (63), Hal Sutton (63), Paul Goydos (64) and Charles Howell (64) were all at 129.

Dunhill Links

ST ANDREWS, Scotland - Darren Clarke, Peter Lawrie and David Howell had 4-under 68s and shared the lead after two rounds of the Dunhill Links Championship.

Clarke carded his score on The Old Course at St Andrews. Howell and Lawrie played Kingsbarns. Carnoustie is the third course being used. The three were at 9 under after 36 holes.

One shot behind were Gary Murphy, former British Open winner Paul Lawrie, Michael Campbell and Henrik Bjornstad.

Safeway Classic

PORTLAND, Ore. - Beth Daniel shot a 10-under 62 to take a four-stroke lead after the first round of the LPGA Safeway Classic and tie the course record set by defending champion Annika Sorenstam.

Daniel, who earlier this year became the oldest player to win on the LPGA Tour, birdied seven of the last nine holes at the 6,327-yard Columbia Edgewater Country Club course.

Grace Park and Cristie Kerr were tied for second at 66, while Sorenstam, who played in the same threesome as Daniel, was another stroke back.

Champions Tour

CONOVER, N.C. - Larry Nelson, who has a win and a third-place finish so far in September, shot an 8-under 64 in the opening round of the Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn and shared the lead with Bruce Fleisher.

Bob Gilder was one shot back of the co-leaders, while Craig Stadler was in a group of three players two behind.
