Comp­ton, Day share lead

Los Angeles Times - - THE DAY IN SPORTS -

Erik Comp­ton birdied three of five holes af­ter a nearly six-hour rain de­lay, giv­ing the two-time heart trans­plant re­cip­i­ent a share of the lead with Ja­son Day early in the third round of the rain­plagued Zurich Clas­sic at Avon­dale, La. Comp­ton and Day were at 13 un­der, a shot ahead of Justin Rose, Blayne Bar­ber, Jerry Kelly and David Hearn at TPC Louisiana when play was suspended be­cause of dark­ness. Comp­ton fin­ished six holes, and Day played three. Be­fore rain halted play, Day fin­ished off a seven-un­der 65 to take the sec­on­dround lead. PGA Tour of­fi­cials said play is sched­uled to re­sume early Sun­day morn­ing.

Brooke Hen­der­son, who led by as many as five shots at one point, dipped to a 72 but held onto a one-stroke lead go­ing into the fi­nal round of the Swing­ing Skirts LPGA Clas­sic at Daly City, Calif. The 17-year-old Canadian was at nine-un­der 207.

Boy­hood ri­vals Ian Woos­nam and Sandy Lyle shot a 64 in bet­ter-ball play to reach 13-un­der and take a two-stroke lead in the Cham­pi­ons Tour’s Bass Pro Shops Leg­ends of Golf at Ridgedale, Mo.
