TORONTO (AP) Carl Yuan moved into position to turn around a forgettable rookie year on the PGA Tour, shooting a 5-under 67 in cool, rainy conditions on Friday to take a one-shot lead at the midway point of the RBC Canadian Open.

Two-time defending champion Rory McIlroy gave himself a chance heading into the weekend at Oakdale. He shot 67 and was three shots back of Yuan's two-day total of 9-under 135.

“I felt like I putted pretty well (Thursday). But iron play was better, wedges were definitely better, got it in play a little more off the tee," said McIlroy, who had never seen the course before the opening round. “So yeah, it was a better, more solid round.”


LPGA Tour left out of LIV deal, for now

GALLOWAY, N.J. (AP) Greg Norman tantalized the best women golfers in the world with a big-bucks flicker of hope that, they too - possibly anyone from a former world No. 1 like Nelly Korda to Stanford phenom Rose Zhang - could eventually revel in the spoils offered by Saudi-backed LIV Golf.

Norman, the commissioner of LIV Golf, insisted in April the upstart golf league propped by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund would consider adding a women’s tour. Read More...

US Open afterthought amid PGA, LIV deal

LOS ANGELES (AP) The toughest test in golf takes on several meanings for this U.S. Open.

Tough usually starts with the golf course, and the North course at Los Angeles Country Club figures to be every bit of that, even if it’s a mystery to most. It has never hosted anything of national significance except for the Walker Cup in 2017. Read More...

Whitnell leads by 4 strokes in Stockholm

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) Dale Whitnell will take a four-shot lead into the final round of the Scandinavian Mixed, where women and men play on the same course for one prize fund and trophy, after Yannik Paul cut into his advantage Saturday.

The 34-year-old Whitnell, whose sole appearance at a major was 11 years ago, took a big step toward his first career win on the European tour when he shot an 11-under 61 Friday. Read More...

McIlroy feels like 'sacrificial lamb'

Rory McIlroy, the strongest voice against Saudi-funded LIV Golf that caused so much disruption in golf, said Wednesday he now feels like a “sacrificial lamb" with the stunning reversal of the PGA Tour becoming partners with Saudi Arabia's enormous wealth fund.

It was McIlroy who helped lead a players-only meeting last August that reshaped the PGA Tour to fend off the challenge of LIV Golf. He has been the loudest critic, a member of the tour's policy board. And he was among the last to hear the news shortly before it broke. Read More...

GREER, S.C. (AP) Michael Feagles made a 25-foot birdie putt on his final hole to shoot a 12-under 59 on Thursday in the first round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Korn Ferry Tour.

It was the ninth sub-60 score in the history of the developmental tour and the second this year. Mac Meissner shot 59 in the second round of the LECOM Suncoast Classic in April. Read More...
