SHARE Tryon tumbles from B.C. Open lead

ENDICOTT, N.Y. — Ty Tryon's youth was not served as a group of veterans, led by Brett Quigley's 10-under 62, took control of the B.C. Open.

The 17-year-old Tryon, coming off a first-round 65, tumbled quickly out of the lead. Struggling with his putting and spending much time playing out of bunkers, the high school junior from Orlando, Fla., shot a 72 in muggy conditions at En-Joie Golf Club.

Quigley took advantage of the cooler morning temperatures to shoot a career-best round, one short of matching a tournament record. With a two-round score of 15-under 129, Quigley holds a three-stroke lead over Mark Hensby (66) and Jonathan Kaye (65).

First-round co-leader Edward Fryatt, shot a 68 to match Jim McGovern (66) at 11 under.

LPGA BIG APPLE CLASSIC: Karen Stupples capped a 5-under-par 66 with a 10-foot birdie putt for a share of the second-round lead with Nancy Scranton in the LPGA Big Apple Classic.

Stupples, who has one top-10 finish this year and is 90th on the money list, had her sixth birdie on the closing par-5 to join Scranton at 7-under 135 on the Wykagyl Country Club course.

Scranton, who held a two-stroke lead after opening with a 64, shot a 71 and still had the lead to herself until Stupples finished in one of the day's final groups.

Michele Redman, who was second after the opening round, Mi Hyun Kim and Rosie Jones were all at 6-under 136. Annika Sorenstam, the defending champion who is looking for her sixth win of the season, shot a 69 for a 1-under 141 total.

SBC SENIOR OPEN: Gary McCord and Dana Quigley shot 7-under 65s to share the first-round lead in the SBC Senior Open, while Bruce Lietzke struggled to a 74 in his senior debut.

McCord, the CBS announcer who has two senior titles, birdied four of his first six holes on the Kemper Lakes course. He made an 18-foot birdie putt on No. 2, holed a 15-footer on the 6th and made eagle on the 11th with a 15-foot putt from the back of the green.

Lietzke, the 13-time winner on the PGA Tour, turned 50 on Wednesday. He plans to play eight events this year.

Hale Irwin opened with a 69. He won the 1995 tournament at Stonebridge Country Club for the first of his record 31 senior titles, and also won in 1998 and 1999 at Kemper Lakes.
