Popoy atop PelicanWom­en’s Championsh­ip ELSEWHERE


Women’s British Open winner Sophia Popov left top-ranked playing partner Jin YoungKo and everyone else behind in the Pelican Women’s Championsh­ip in Belleair, Fla.

Popov shot a 6-under 64 in windy conditions to take a two-stroke lead over Ashleigh Buhai, with Ko eight shots behind after a 72 in her first LPGA Tour start of the year.

Popov birdied the last five holes for a front-nine 29, then cooled off on the back with two birdies and two bogeys— the last on the par-4 18th.

The race will be held Saturday, Aug. 7 and will be part of a doublehead­er with the Xfinity Series. The weekend will be capped by the Cup Series race on Sunday. It’s the first time that all three of NASCAR’s national series will compete on a single weekend at The Glen, located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.

♦ American triple jumper Omar Craddock was suspended in another case related to missing doping tests. The Athletics Integrity Unit said the Pan American Games champion has been charged for whereabout­s violations and is under provisiona­l suspension awaiting a hearing.
