(Reuters) - Tom Lehman took advantage of some gentler conditions late in the day at the difficult French Lick Resort course to post a 67 and take a one-stroke lead at the halfway mark of the Senior PGA Championship on Friday. Lehman posted five birdies in the back nine after a challenging wind died down to reach four-under-par 140, one shot better than defending champion Colin Montgomerie of Scotland (69) and American Brian Henninger (67) at French Lick, Indiana. Another stroke back at 142 was Mexico's Esteban Toledo (68), with first-round leader Massy Kuramoto of Japan three shots off the pace after posting an even-par 72 for 143.

A big sinkhole discovered Friday near the driving range of a southwest Missouri golf course is attracting the attention of geological experts. The hole, which is 80 feet wide and 35 feet deep in some places, was created by two separate sinkholes that formed near the entrance to Top of the Rock golf course near the resort town of Branson, Martin MacDonald, conservation director for Bass Pro Shops, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. The Jack Nicklaus-designed par-3 course is part of the Bass Pro Shops-owned Big Cedar Lodge complex and hosted a Champions Tour event last month.

(Reuters) - Kevin Na had a hot hand with the putter on another wet day at the Crowne Plaza Invitational to shoot a four-under-par 66 on Friday for a two-shot lead at the halfway mark at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. England's Ian Poulter, who started at the 10th hole, also got hot in his second nine with four birdies in a 67 for second place at 132, one better than 2013 winner Boo Weekley. Weekley overcame a nightmare start of four bogeys in his first five holes to shoot a 69 for 133.
Kevin Na had gone 26 holes without a bogey at Colonial before his last tee shot Friday was swept away by flowing water after going into a rain-swollen drainage culvert. Not even that could dampen Na's second round that gave him the lead halfway through the soggy tournament. At 10-under 130, Na was two strokes ahead of Ian Poulter (67) and three up on 2013 Colonial winner Boo Weekley (69).
