Leonard leads at Harbour Town

Posted: Sunday, April 21, 2002

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- Making up for years of frustration at Harbour Town, Justin Leonard shot a 5-under 66 Saturday to break the WorldCom Classic's 54-hole scoring record.

Leonard, who has never finished higher than 30th in the event and thought about skipping the tournament, has thrived on the Harbour Town's tight, tree-lined fairways and small greens.

Seve Trophy

NEWTOWNMOUNTKENNEDY, Ireland -- Britain and Ireland won three best-ball matches and halved the alternate-shot competition for 10-6 lead over Europe in the Seve Trophy.

Europe will need a minimum of seven points from Sunday's 10 singles matches to retain the trophy it won two years ago on the strength of Seve Ballesteros' victory over Colin Montgomerie.

Longs Drugs Challenge

LINCOLN, Calif. -- Cristie Kerr put herself in position for her first LPGA Tour title, shooting a 5-under 67 to take a five-stroke lead in the Longs Drugs Challenge.

Australia's Jane Crafter was second after a 70, and Heather Bowie (68) was six strokes back along with South Koreans Mi Hyun Kim (71) and Hee-Won Han (67).
