By the end of the week, Jordan Spieth might be No. 1 in just one major category – the PGA Tour money list. Rory McIlroy will get back to No. 1 in the world ranking after Spieth replaced him two weeks ago. Bubba Watson and Jason Day are the only two players who can top Spieth at No. 1 in the FedEx Cup, and only if they win the opening FedEx Cup playoff event at Plainfield Country Club.

(Reuters) – Taiwan’s Yani Tseng produced a stunning eagle-birdie finish to seize a one-stroke lead in the weather-disrupted second round of the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic in Prattville, Alabama, on Friday. The former world number one covered her final six holes in five under par to shoot a flawless eight-under 64 on the Senator Course at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Tseng struck a six-iron to four feet to set up an eagle at her 17th hole, the par-five eighth, and then had to wait out a 96-minute weather delay due to the threat of lightning before returning to the course to pocket her sixth birdie of the round to post an 10-under total of 134.

By Larry Fine EDISON, New Jersey (Reuters) – Tony Finau is the first player of Tongan and American Samoan descent to compete on the PGA Tour and the former fire knife dancer has been able to transfer his skills to a different kind of blade to compete at the highest level. Finau’s rise from Salt Lake City poverty to golf’s premier tour is the stuff of Disney movie scripts but the strapping rookie is proving more fact than fiction as he stands one shot off the lead halfway through The Barclays. The 25-year-old followed his opening five-under 65 with a 69 on Friday to sit just behind two-times Masters winner Bubba Watson at Plainfield Country Club.
