Santiago to join sister at IUN: Crown Point senior Alyvia Santiago pledged her commitment to Indiana Northwest, the program announced on Twitter Friday. Santiago will play alongside her older sister Alyna, who is a RedHawks freshman this year. Alyvia, a 5-foot-8 guard, averaged 5.5 points per game last season. The Santiago sisters helped lead Crown Point to a Class 4A state championship.

Hall shares British lead: Nelly Korda could barely raise a smile after tapping in for the first birdie of her second round at the Women’s British Open. On a day her putter turned cold, it had taken 14 holes for the world’s top-ranked player to pick up a shot at Carnoustie. Some of her big rivals had no such problems Friday. Georgia Hall, the 2018 champion, overcame a double-bogey at the 15th hole — the start of a brutal finish at the storied Scottish links course — to shoot 3-under 69 and take a share of the 36-hole lead with Mina Harigae of the United States (67) on 7 under overall. One stroke back was No. 4 Sei Young Kim (71), a major champion from last year, and Lizette Salas (69), who finished second to Korda at the PGA Championship in June.
Playoff critic Rahm leads opener: Jon Rahm is young enough at 26 that the FedEx Cup has been a big part of the PGA Tour as long as he has been chasing his dreams, and winning the trophy would mean a lot to him. He just doesn't like the way it works, and building a one-shot lead Friday in The Northern Trust was only a reminder that great golf doesn't really mean much without a great finish. "I don't like it. I don't think it's fair," Rahm said Friday after another bogey-free round at Liberty National, this one a 4-under 67 for a one-shot lead over Tony Finau.
