(Reuters) – PGA Tour rookie Jon Curran capitalized on a fast start and some pinpoint iron shots to surge into a three-way tie for the lead in the weather-disrupted second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson in Irving, Texas on Friday. While Masters champion Jordan Spieth also charged into contention after struggling on the greens in his opening round, Curran set the early pace by firing a six-under-par 63 at the rain-saturated TPC Four Seasons Resort Las Colinas. “I got off to a pretty good start, hit some really close iron shots and I made some good 10 or 15-foot putts for birdie,” Curran told reporters.

Jordan Spieth wasn’t sure what par was at his hometown AT&T Byron Nelson and thinks it actually might have helped him through some frustrating early holes. There’s a reason the Masters champion was uncertain – overnight rain turned one of the signature par 4s at the saturated TPC Four Seasons into a pitch-and-putt par 3 at 105 yards for the second round Friday. Spieth had a birdie 2 along with most players within three shots of second-round leaders Steven Bowditch, Jon Curran and Texan Jimmy Walker.

(Reuters) – Morgan Pressel, benefiting from a swing change made earlier this year, spectacularly eagled her final hole to seize a one-shot lead in the opening round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic in Galloway, New Jersey on Friday. The 27-year-old American struck a driver off the tee, then a superb five-hybrid to within three feet at the par-five ninth before sinking the eagle putt for a five-under 66 at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club. Swede Anna Nordqvist birdied three of her last seven holes for 67 to end the day level with American Ryann O’Toole, Canada’s Alena Sharp and Taiwan’s Min Lee.
