Amy Yang of South Korea fired a 67 for a one shot advantage over Chinese Shanshan Feng and local hope Ariya Jutanugarn after the delayed halfway stage of the US$1.6 million LPGA Thailand at the Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course on Saturday. The 2015 champion and world No. 11 Yang had six birdies and a bogey on the seventh hole to head into the weekend rounds on 11-under 133. The Thai who shared the lead with Yang in the first round shot an unblemished round of a 68 to be tied for second on 10-under.

(Reuters) - Former number one golfer Rory McIlroy said on Friday that his outing last week with President Donald Trump was not a political endorsement of America's new leader but rather "simply a round of golf." The decision by the Northern Irish golfer to accept the invitation to play with the president at his Trump National golf course in Florida has come under fire on social media by some who saw it as approval of Trump and his policies. "To be called a fascist and a bigot by some people because I spent time in someone's company is just ridiculous," McIlroy, who lives much of the year in Florida, said on Twitter. It was quite simply a round of golf.

Ryan Palmer has reason to believe that better days are ahead, with his golf game and at home. Palmer made seven birdies Friday on another day of ideal scoring conditions at PGA National for a 5-under 65 that gave him a share of the lead with PGA Tour rookie Wesley Bryan (67) going into the weekend at the Honda Classic. Rickie Fowler was a shot back after his second 66, and Anirban Lahiri was another stroke behind after a 68.

(Reuters) - Ryan Palmer, lifted by good news both on and off the course, fired a five-under-par 65 on Friday to share the midway lead of the Honda Classic with rookie Wesley Bryan at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Palmer, who missed the cut in his first four events this year before tying for 49th last week in Los Angeles, had seven birdies and a pair of bogeys to finish on nine-under 131 along with Bryan (67), one better than fellow-American Rickie Fowler. Most importantly for the 40-year-old Palmer, his wife Jennifer is on the road to recovery after being diagnosed with breast cancer last July.

Paul Waring led by one shot after 12 holes of his second round when play was suspended for bad light at the Joburg Open on Friday. The Englishman made five birdies in those holes on the West Course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington to move 12 under par, ahead of South Africans Darren Fichardt and Dean Burmester. Fichardt was in the clubhouse with a second 66, thanks mainly to a sizzling opening nine on the East Course.
