Friday, August 28, 2015 6:25pm

PGA: The Barclays - Second RoundBy Larry Fine EDISON, New Jersey (Reuters) - Tony Finau is the first player of Tongan and American Samoan descent to compete on the PGA Tour and the former fire knife dancer has been able to transfer his skills to a different kind of blade to compete at the highest level. Finau's rise from Salt Lake City poverty to golf's premier tour is the stuff of Disney movie scripts but the strapping rookie is proving more fact than fiction as he stands one shot off the lead halfway through The Barclays. The 25-year-old followed his opening five-under 65 with a 69 on Friday to sit just behind two-times Masters winner Bubba Watson at Plainfield Country Club.


Strong finish puts Tseng one ahead in Alabama

LPGA: Canadian Pacific Women's Open - Final Round(Reuters) - Taiwan's Yani Tseng produced a stunning eagle-birdie finish to seize a one-stroke lead in the weather-disrupted second round of the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic in Prattville, Alabama, on Friday. The former world number one covered her final six holes in five under par to shoot a flawless eight-under 64 on the Senator Course at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Tseng eagled her 17th hole, the par-five eighth, then had to wait out a 96-minute weather delay due to the threat of lightning in the area before returning to the course to pocket her sixth birdie of the round for a 10-under total of 134.
