Associated Press

LUTZ, Fla. — Defending champion Tom Watson shot an 8-under 63 to take a three-stroke lead over Mark Wiebe and David Eger in the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am.

The five-time British Open champion shot a 7-under 28 on his last nine hole, the front nine of the TPC Tampa Bay, missing just two birdie putts — a 12-footer on No. 2 and a 20-footer on No. 8. He hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation.

Wiebe is coming off a victory April 6 in the Cap Cana Championship in the Dominican Republic.

Tseng leads Ochoa by 3


REUNION, Fla. — Lorena Ochoa will have to come from behind to win a fourth consecutive tournament.

Ochoa shot a 5-under 67 in the second round of the Ginn Open on Friday, leaving her three strokes behind leader Yani Tseng.

Tseng moved to 12 under with a course-record 64. Suzann Pettersen (66) was 10 under, one shot ahead of Ochoa and Minea Blomqvist (66).

Tseng is a rookie from Taiwan who earned her card in qualifying school last year.
