Rahm, Hurley share Quicken Loans lead (Reuters) (Jun 24, 2016 10:03pm) |
(Reuters) - Spain's Jon Rahm kept up his impressive professional debut by posting a four-under-par 67 to share a three-shot, second-round lead with local favorite Billy Hurley III at the Quicken Loans National on Friday. Overnight leader Rahm, the former Arizona State golfer who was the low amateur at last week's U.S. Open at Oakmont, held sole possession of the lead before missing a four-foot par putt at the last in Bethesda, Maryland. Hurley, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate who calls nearby Annapolis his home, fired a six-under 65 to join playing partner Rahm on 11-under-par 131 at Congressional.
Uehara ties tournament record to surge clear in Arkansas (Reuters) (Jun 24, 2016 10:01pm)Japan's Ayako Uehara shoots 62 to take NW Arkansas lead (The Associated Press) (Jun 24, 2016 7:45pm)
(Reuters) - Japan's Ayako Uehara scorched her way to a tournament-record tying nine-under-par 62 to seize a two-stroke lead after the first round of the Arkansas Championship on Friday. Uehara made nine birdies in a bogey-free round to match the 18-hole scoring record set by Jane Park and Angela Park in 2008. "With (my) caddie and trainer, everybody is like a team and so everything is coming together, including the swing coach," Uehara told reporters.
One of Ayako Uehara's best memories in her four full-time seasons on the LPGA Tour is a hole-in-one she made in her first appearance at the NW Arkansas Championship in 2013. Uehara added to her growing list of memorable moments at Pinnacle Country Club by shooting a career-best 62 in the opening round Friday. Uehara needed only 25 putts and made nine birdies in her bogey-free round, a score that bested her previous career low of 63 she posted in Malaysia in 2014.

Jon Rahm was surprised about the level of fan support he has received at the Quicken Loans National, far away from his native Spain and where he went to school at Arizona State. It helped that Rahm was playing with local guy Bobby Hurley III and helped even more that the two players went shot-for-shot Friday to share the lead. Rahm and Hurley were tied at 11 under, three strokes ahead of Vijay Singh going into the weekend at Congressional.
