Mallon shares LPGA top spot

Meg Mallon and Angela Jerman thrived before swirling winds hampered play during yesterday's second round of the LPGA's Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic at Highland Meadows GC in Sylvania, Ohio.

Playing early in the day, Mallon and Jerman shared the lead at 7-under-par 135.

Mallon, who won the US Open last month at The Orchards in South Hadley, Mass., put together a 69 that included a double-bogey on the par-3 6th hole and an eagle on the par-5 17th.

PGA -- Chris DiMarco had four birdies to complete his first round, then added 9 more in the second for 31 points and a 6-point lead before play was halted because of darkness at The International in Castle Rock, Colo. First-round leader Rod Pampling was second with 25 points through 11 holes of the second round of the tournament, which uses the modified Stableford scoring system.

LPGA European -- Janice Moodie and Becky Morgan shot 2-under 70s for the second straight day to share the lead halfway through the HP Open at Stockholm. Annika Sorenstam shot a par 72 after a birdie and a bogey, and lies two shots off the lead at 2-under 142. Sorenstam grew up near Ullna's tough lakeside course but has not played here since she was an amateur 15 years ago.

Champions -- Craig Stadler and Tom Purtzer carded 8-under 64s and shared the first-round lead at the 3M Championship at the TPC of the Twin Cities in Blaine, Minn.

European -- Australia's Richard Green shot a 7-under 63 for a three-stroke lead halfway through the KLM Open at Hilversum, Netherlands. Green is at 12-under 128 after two rounds.
