Teske opens a 4-stroke lead in LPGA Rochester



The Associated Press

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - On a soggy Saturday when low rounds were rare, a confident Rachel Teske shot even-par 72 to move to 7-under 209 while doubling her lead to four strokes in the Rochester LPGA International.

Middletown's Marianne Morris was five strokes back at 214.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Ed Dougherty sank two birdie putts of more than 40 feet late in the second round to take a one-stroke lead over Hubert Green and tie the Farmers Charity Classic record for lowest 36-hole score at 132 after a pair of 6-under-par 66s in Grand Rapids, Mich.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen shot a 5-under 67 for a 9-under 207 total to take a five-stroke lead into the final round at the Diageo Championship in Gleneagles, Scotland.

U.S. WOMEN'S PUBLINX: Michelle Wie, 13, moved within a victory of becoming the youngest golfer to win this USGA event.

Wie won quarterfinal and semifinal matches to earn a spot in the 36-hole finale today against Virada Nirapathpongporn of Thailand.

If Wie wins today in Palm Coast, Fla., she will break Catherine Cartwright's record as the youngest Public Links champion. Cartwright was 17 when she won the championship in 2000.

U.S. PUBLINX QUALIFIER: Xavier's Miles Maillet and Ohio State's Kevin Hall (Winton Woods/St. Rita School for the Deaf) qualified at Glenview for the national tournament July 19-24 in Atlantic City.

WOMEN'S SENIOR TOUR: Martha Nause, 48, shot a 4-under-par 68 to take a one-stroke lead over Jan Stephenson in the first round in the Hy-Vee Classic at Johnston, Iowa.
