Several in contention at LPGA Championship

Sunday, June 11, 2006

Pat Hurst let everyone back into the LPGA Championship with a four-putt double bogey. Michelle Wie might be tied for the lead if not for missing a par putt from 18 inches.

Not even Annika Sorenstam was immune from a crazy, windsept day at Bulle Rock in Havre de Grace, Md., with a two-shot penalty that sent her spiraling down the leaderboard.

Hurst missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole and had to settle for an even-par 72. That left her tied for the lead with Ai Miyazato. They were at 7-under 209.

Wie three-putted for bogey three times, none as shocking as the par-3 17th.

Dalhousie touring pro Karen Stupples shot a 77 and was at 7 over.

PGA Tour

Billy Andrade shot a 2-under 69 in windy conditions Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over Vijay Singh and Adam Scott in the Barclays Classic in Harrison, N.Y.

Champions Tour

Fish frolicked along the flooded fairways and bunkers as rain and the overflowing Sudbury River forced the Champions Tour to postpone the entire Bank of America event in Concord, Mass.
