GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The wind usually is the best defense at the Bay Course of the Seaview Resort, which has been susceptible to low scores carded by the top players on the women's tour over the years at the ShopRite LPGA Classic. With gusts around 20 miles an hour out of the northwest, the wind was doing its part Friday to befuddle the 75 players who teed off in the morning half of the draw. Strangely, however, most of the afternoon portion of the field seemed to have the wind pretty much figured out by the time they teed off. Jiyai Shin made the adjustment better than anyone, firing a 5-under-par 66 to take a 1-stroke lead over Sandra Gal after the opening round of the 54-hole tournament.

CARMEL, Ind. - Vijay Singh keeps giving himself chances to end four years without a PGA Tour victory. But the competition isn't getting any easier at the BMW Championship. Singh made four straight birdies in the middle of his round and had to settle for a two-putt birdie from 15 feet on his last hole. It gave him a 6-under 66 and a 1-shot lead going into the weekend at Crooked Stick. It's the second time in his last four tournaments Singh has had at least a share of the 36-hole lead.

HOYLAKE, England - Jiyai Shin opened a 5-stroke lead in the Women's British Open, shooting an 8-under 64 on Saturday in the wind-delayed second round. Coming off a playoff victory Monday in the Kingsmill Championship, the 24-year-old South Korean player had a 9-under 135 total at Royal Liverpool. The nine-time LPGA Tour winner hit all 18 greens in regulation and needed only 28 putts. The 64 is the lowest round in competition at Royal Liverpool, breaking the mark of 65 set by four players in the 2006 British Open.

Lee Westwood of England became Europe's No. 1 golfer yesterday after winning the Dubai World Championship in the United Arab Emirates, by six strokes. Westwood shot a course-record 8-under 64 in the final round at the Earth Course to finish at 23-under 265. He earned $1.25 million with the 31st victory of his career to overtake Rory McIlroy on the season-long money list and win the European Tour's first Race to Dubai since it changed from the European Order of Merit. Ross McGowan of England was second after a 68, and McIlroy, of Northern Ireland, shot a 67 to finish third on 273. The 36-year-old Westwood's $1.5 million bonus for finishing atop the money list took his total European Tour earnings to $6,376,984.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Cristie Kerr had spent the first two days and the opening six holes of Sunday's round at the ShopRite LPGA Classic in control of her game before the unfortunate results of a couple of shots seemed to slow her momentum. Kerr, who held a 2-stroke lead early in the round, carded back-to-back bogeys at the seventh and eighth holes at Seaview's Bay Course to fall back. She couldn't quite grab a share of the lead after that, finishing in a tie for second behind the champion, Brittany Lincicome . "Nothing went my way today," said Kerr, the top-ranked American in the world rankings.

ONE DAY Rory McIlroy was on top of the world, the next day he was caught in an identity crisis between two golfing nations. "I was hoping that my success on the golf course would be the more popular topic of golfing conversation today," McIlroy said in a letter he posted Monday on Twitter. Not long after he beat the strongest leaderboard of the year in the BMW Championship in Carmel, Ind., McIlroy found himself in the middle of a debate over which flag he might represent when golf returns to the Olympics in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.

Teen sensation Lydia Ko and South Korea's Jiyai Shin each shot a 70 Saturday to surge 6 shots clear of the field heading into the final day of the Women's Australian Open at Royal Canberra. The New Zealand-based 15-year-old jumped to an early lead with birdies on the second, fourth, and sixth holes. Later, however, she allowed Shin to retake a share of the lead with bogeys on Nos. 12 and 14. Beatriz Recari had a 71 to finish third. Top-ranked Yani Tseng also hit a 71 to finish a stroke back with a group of five players at 9 under, along with overnight leader Mariajo Uribe , who shot a 79.   In the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles, Bill Haas had another bogey-free round at Riviera CC while shooting a 7-under 64 - the best round of the day by 3 shots - to take a 3-stroke lead into the final day. On a warm day that made the greens even faster, Haas finished 12-under at 201. U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel each had a 68. They were three behind, along with John Merrick (70)

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - After Brittany Lincicome hit one of the best chip shots of her career at the 18th hole with the championship of the ShopRite LPGA Classic in the balance, all she had to do was try to calm her nerves on the winning putt the best she could. It wasn't easy. "My hands were shaking so bad," she admitted. But Lincicome steadied herself enough to drain the five-footer for birdie Sunday to finish in front of a three-way chase for the title and win the event on the Bay Course of Seaview Resort, her first victory since early in the 2009 season.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - On a windswept course bordered by wiry fescue and bounded by slick, drying greens, she who drove it straight played great. Woe be to her who did not. Jiyai Shin hit 13 of 14 fairways and rode a well-worn putter, needing only 28 putts, to card a routine, 5-under-par 66 in the first round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Sandra Gal, who played in Shin's threesome in a replay of the Kia Classic in March, settled into second, one shot back. Gal blasted out of a plugged lie in a bunker to tap in at 15 and backsided a 10-foot birdie putt on 18 to hang with Shin.
