If the first day of the Women's British Open was all about Donald Trump, the second day belonged to Suzann Pettersen. Out at 6.41 a.m. Friday in the second group, Pettersen shot a 3-under 69 for a score that only looked better and better as a grueling day on the wind-beaten Ailsa links wore on. Maria McBride of Sweden was the only player to beat Pettersen's score with a bogey-free 66 but was still way off the pace after an opening-round 79.

(Reuters) - Swede David Lingmerth birdied three of his last five holes to take the clubhouse lead in the second round while tournament host Tiger Woods also charged into contention at the Quicken Loans National in Virginia on Friday. Lingmerth, who won his first PGA Tour title in a playoff for the Memorial Tournament last month, fired a sizzling six-under-par 65 on another hot, sunny day at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville. The 28-year-old from Tranas signed off by sinking a 20-foot birdie putt at the par-three ninth to post a nine-under total of 133, one stroke ahead of Woods (66) and five other players.
