Jaco Van Zyl will take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the French Open and a shot at a maiden European Tour title after carding a 7-under-par 64 on Saturday. Van Zyl has won 13 times on the Sunshine Tour, and has 17 top-10 finishes on the European Tour, including two this season while playing on a medical exemption with a brace on his leg. Maximilian Kieffer of Germany, also chasing his first European Tour title, was two back after shooting a bogey-free 65 and rising seven places.
By Tony Jimenez LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Melissa Reid turned into a rebel with a cause after suffering a family bereavement in 2012 and only in the last few months has she been able to put her grief to one side and focus fully on golf again. Reid lost her mother and chief motivator Joy in a road accident in Germany three years ago and for a long time she was lost in a fog of despair. "I used to hate talking about it but I feel I've been on a massive journey and I'm coming out of it now," the 28-year-old told Reuters in an interview during the European Masters at the Buckinghamshire Golf Club on the outskirts of London.
(Reuters) - Tiger Woods mixed some good shots with a couple of terrible drives as he carded a one-under-par 69 in the second round of the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia on Friday. A day after shooting his best score in 16 months, a 66, Woods reverted to mediocrity and ended the day equal 26th, four strokes behind pacesetters Jhonattan Vegas and Scott Langley at the Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs. Woods, who four weeks ago shot the worst score of his decorated career, an 85 at the Memorial tournament, did not speak to the media.
Jhonattan Vegas hasn't had much success since winning his second PGA Tour event as a rookie in 2011. The Greenbrier Classic could give him that needed boost. Vegas shot a 5-under-par 65 to tie Scott Langley for the lead after the second round Friday.
