Kraft holds narrow lead at Greenbrier

63 boosts Kraft into lead at Greenbrier's Military Tribute Na wins by five at Greenbrier for first victory since 2011

Kraft posted his career-best round at The Old White TPC and was at 13-under 127 overall.

Kelly Kraft shot a seven-under 63 in the second round of The Greenbrier to take a one-stroke lead over first-round leader Webb Simpson and Anirban Lahiri. Simpson shot 76 to fall eight strokes back.

"Anytime you shoot 63 I guess you have to".

"I felt like I played good last week, it was just a couple breaks here and there". "It's a good feeling".

Kraft, whose best career finish on the PGA Tour is a tie for second at the John Deere Classic in 2017, had missed the cut in seven of his last 10 events, including last week's National. "I weathered that storm and made some birdies there on the front nine to keep it under par and give myself a chance for the weekend". He then birdied the long par-4 11th hole before moving to the par-5 12th, which has been one of the easier holes throughout the tournament.

"I pushed (my drive) off of the tee".

"I've kind of changed my attitude a little bit starting with last week", Kraft said. "It rattled around and went out of bounds". Her approach was well short of the hole, and her birdie putt missed badly.

"I'm playing really well".

European - Erik van Rooyen left behind his overnight co-leaders to grab a commanding four-shot lead going into the final day of the Irish Open in Donegal.

"My wife had a talking to me last night and said my attitude was awful so I had to change it", the 39-year-old said. He needed birdies on the par-5 17th and the par-3 18th for a 59 but found only pars on both. "Not playing flawless golf, Just going for targets and having fun with it", Varner said. "I made a good swing there".

"Just trust yourself, " she said. I putted well today.

On back nine he had five more birdies. In round one, Simpson was able to scramble for a par from his errant tee ball in the high grass on the right of the 13th fairway, but Friday he was not so fortunate. A bogey on the next hole slid Simpson farther down the leaderboard and the first-round leader appeared to be in trouble.

But the veteran bounced back with a birdie on No. 16 and closed the round with four birdies in a five-hole stretch to stay within a stroke of the lead going into today's third round. "Almost as satisfying as being 2-over early, and coming back and shooting 3-under". "I hung in there".

"It's nice to come out and hit the shots that you can see in practice and actually perform still under pressure when the clubs are in your hand and you're trying to obviously improve what you're doing".

Behind that trio sits Jason Kokrak at 11 under and in sole possession of fourth place. The native of Ontario, Canada, tallied six birdies on the day and played bogey-free golf for the second day in a row.

LPGA - Sei Young Kim shot an 8-under-par 64 in the third round of Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic in Oneida, Wis., to tie the 54-hole record of 24 under and take a commanding eight-stroke lead. "The wind blew from the opposite side", Kim explained.

"If I can continue to make no bogeys, that would be ideal. But everything is positive and it was a good day".
