Coleaders at Torrey Pines
SAN DIEGO - Brandt Snedeker ended another round at Torrey Pines atop the leader board. Only this time he had company, and still a long way to go.
Snedeker, the defending champion, played bogey-free on the North Course for a 7-under 65 Thursday that gave him a share of the lead with K.J. Choi in the Farmers Insurance Open. Eight players were a stroke back.
Tiger Woods, a seven-time champion at Torrey Pines, was in range of the lead until two late bogeys left him with a 68 on the South. Phil Mickelson had a 72 on the North.
DOHA, Qatar - Ryder Cup stars Martin Kaymer and Sergio Garcia were among four players tied for the lead in the Qatar Masters after the second round. The leader board was crowded, with 15 players within three shots of the leaders, thanks to mainly calm conditions at Doha Golf Course.
Kaymer had a 5-under 67, and Garcia (66), overnight leader Ricardo Santos (70) of Portugal, and Marcus Fraser (67) of Australia were at 9-under 135.
Starting next year, the LPGA Tour will host the International Crown, a tournament that will feature team matches among the eight countries that can field the strongest four-player teams based on the world rankings.
The inaugural event will be held in late July at Caves Valley Golf Club outside Baltimore.
