Montreal • Two-time winner Jim Furyk birdied two of his last four holes Friday in the Canadian Open to match the Royal Montreal record at 7-under 63 and tie Tim Petrovic atop the leaderboard.

The 44-year-old Furyk, the 2006 winner at Hamilton and 2007 champion at Angus Glen, matched Petrovic at 10-under 130 on the tree-line Blue Course. The 47-year-old Petrovic followed his opening 64 with a 66.

Canada's Graham DeLaet, playing in a threesome with Furyk and Matt Kuchar, was two strokes back along with Kyle Stanley. DeLaet, trying to become the first Canadian winner in the event in 60 years, also had a 63.

Stanley shot 67.

Furyk and DeLaet matched the course record set by David Morland and Scott Verplank in the second round of the 2001 Canadian Open.

LPGA Tour

Owings Mills, Md. • The United States shuffled its lineup in the second round of the International Crown and got the desired result, beating Spain twice to earn its first points in the eight-country event.

Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr took control on the back nine against Belen Mozo and Beatriz Recari in a 3-and-2 win, and Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis held on to beat Azahara Munoz and Carlota Ciganda 2 up.

One day earlier, the top-seeded U.S. lost twice to Taiwan and was the only country without a point.

Thailand leads Pool A with five points, followed by Taiwan and the U.S. with four and Spain with three.

Senior british open

Bridgend, Wales • Bernhard Langer opened a seven-stroke lead in the Senior British Open, following his opening 65 with a 66 to reach 11 under at sunny Royal Porthcawl.

The German lost a playoff to Mark Wiebe last year at Royal Birkdale after blowing a two-stroke lead on the final hole of regulation when he failed to get out of a greenside bunker. —
