Meadow takes clubhouse lead at LPGA Canadian Pacific Women's Open
Stephanie Meadow of Northern Ireland fired a six-under-par 66 to take the clubhouse lead at the weather-disrupted Canadian Pacific Women's Open. Meadow, 24, on Thursday carded seven birdies and one bogey to tame the challenging par-72 layout at Calgary's Priddis Greens Golf and Country Club. Meadow said she was still buoyed after finishing in a respectable tie for 31st in Rio.

Reed, Laird grab early lead at PGA Barclays
Patrick Reed and Martin Laird fired five-under-par 66s to open up a one-shot lead after the first round of The Barclays Championship. Reed's impressive opening round left him sitting pretty alongside Scotland's Laird after a first round that saw Sweden's Henrik Stenson limp out injured. Reed, who teed off on the back nine, grabbed the first of his three birdies on the second, before eagling the par-five fourth hole with a 16-foot putt.

Ko starts strongly in quest for fourth Canadian Open title
(Reuters) - New Zealand's Lydia Ko, seeking her fourth Canadian Women's Open title before the age of 20, made a promising start when she carded a five-under-par 67 in the first round in Alberta on Thursday. The Korean-born teenager, four days after her silver medal- winning performance at the Rio Olympics, wasted no time getting back into the bread-and-butter swing of regular LPGA competition. Ko made the Canadian Women's Open her first LPGA victory when she triumphed in 2012 at the age of 15.

Lewis flirts with a 59, settles for 62 in Denmark
(Reuters) - England's Tom Lewis flirted with shooting the first ever 59 on the European Tour before settling for a nine-under-par 62 and a share of the first round lead at the Made in Denmark tournament in Farso on Thursday. Lewis had got to 12 under with five holes to play and needed only pars coming in to dip under 60 but he slipped back with bogeys at the fifth (his 14th hole), eighth and ninth to finish level with Belgium's Thomas Pieters and Swede Joakim Lagergren. "It was a good round today but a disappointing one, but how many people can get disappointed with nine under?" the 25-year-old Lewis told reporters at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.

Lewis close to history at Made in Denmark
Fars (Denmark) (AFP) - Tom Lewis looked on course to complete the first 59 in European Tour history but hit three late bogeys to finish with a joint-leading 62 at the Made in Denmark open on Thursday.
