Howell, Ames tied for lead
Charles Howell III and Stephen Ames got the best of both worlds Friday in the Bay Hill Invitational. They were among only 30 players to complete the second round, and they were atop the leaderboard in Orlando, Fla.
On a day that felt like a marathon to some and a vacation to others, Howell ended his long day with another short birdie putt that gave him rounds of 71-68, giving him a share of the early lead in the rain-delayed tournament.
Ames also played 36 holes and posted the same scores. He birdied five of six holes in one stretch, then finished with a 5-foot par to join Howell at 5-under 139.
Lorena Ochoa shot a 5-under 67 to open a two-shot lead in the Safeway International at Superstition Mountain, Ariz., with Annika Sorenstam just three strokes behind and the resurgent Michelle Wie also in contention.
Ochoa, the 23-year-old Mexican star who was the LPGA Tour's rookie of the year two seasons ago, had a 12-under 132 total.
Soo-Yun Kang was second after a 66, and Sorenstam, the defending champion, was 9 under after a 69. Siew-Ai Lim, who shared the first-round lead with Ochoa, was 7 under after a 72, with Grace Park (67) and Karen Stupples (71) were 6 under.
