Lydia Ko took a one-stroke lead into the final round of the New Zealand Women's Open after shooting a 5-under 67 Saturday. The South Korean-born New Zealander, who is defending her national title, started the day in a tie for fifth after an opening 69. On Saturday, she had six birdies and a bogey which moved her one shot ahead of Justine Dreher of France, who shot 70.

The back nine didn't go according to plan for Phil Mickelson during the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and the par-3 14th hole at Monterey Peninsula served as the best illustration. Mickelson's tee shot was a laser that covered the flag, and as it descended toward the green, Mickelson began talking to his golf ball. Mickelson was 7-under par through 10 holes and had two par 5s in front of him.

(Reuters) - South Korea's Kang Sung-hoon fell one stroke shy of becoming only the seventh player to shoot a 59 on the PGA Tour as he surged into a tie for the lead after the second round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on Friday. Needing a birdie on his final hole at Monterey Peninsula Country Club to dip under 60, Kang hit his "worst shot of the day" off the tee and had to settle for a par three there and a career-best score of 11-under 60. Four-times champion Phil Mickelson was a further stroke back in a three-way tie for third, having also raised hopes of a magical 59 after making an electric start before he lost momentum on his back nine to card a 65 at Monterey Peninsula.

Sung Kang didn't know anything about his amateur partner until he went on the Internet and looked up actor Ray Romano. It added to a memorable day at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where Kang and Hiroshi Iwata of Japan wound up tied for the lead. ''I feel like I'm living a dream right now,'' Kang said.

Bernhard Langer had a hard time choosing what kind of putter to use. Last week in the Allianz Championship in Boca Raton, he had two putters in his bag for a round. ''I practiced with two different putters (Thursday) night and I practiced some more this morning before the round with two different putters,'' he said.
