SHARE Wie tied for lead at Evian Masters

EVIAN, France — Michelle Wie is tied for the lead at a tournament again.

Now she has to prove she can stay there.

Wie shot a 6-under 66 in the second round of the Evian Masters on Thursday to share the lead with Lorena Ochoa and Karrie Webb. It's the fourth time the 16-year-old from Hawaii has had a share of the lead as a professional — though she's still looking for her first victory.

"I just played more smart," said Wie, who opened with a first-round 69. "You never know what might happen."

Ochoa, the top money winner this season in women's golf, shot a 69 to get to 9-under 135. Webb had a 68 to go with her opening round 67 on the lakeside course in the Alpine foothills, where the temperature reached 94 degrees.

SENIOR BRITISH OPEN: At Turnberry, Scotland, Loren Roberts shot a 5-under 65 for a share of the first-round lead in the Senior British Open with Peter Jacobsen and Craig Stadler.

Defending champion Tom Watson struggled in his return to Turnberry with a 73.

Watson, the winner last year at Royal Aberdeen, won the 2003 tournament at Turnberry. He also won the 1977 British Open at Turnberry for the second of his five victories in the event.
