Pro golf

Andrew Putnam, Dustin Johnson turn St. Jude into 2-man race: Andrew Putnam will be playing in the last group on Sunday for the first time looking for his first PGA Tour victory.

His playing partner will be Dustin Johnson, who's already won once this year and needs his 18th career victory to reclaim his spot as the world's top-ranked golfer .

No pressure at all.

"It's going to feel a little different than the typical Sunday round of golf, but I'm excited for it," Putnam said. "I've earned my way here and I feel like it's going to be a fun day. See what happens."

Tom Lehman leads Champions' Principal Charity Classic: Tom Lehman might finally get an elusive senior victory in Iowa after so many close calls.

Lehman shot a 7-under 65 on Saturday to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the PGA Tour Champions' Principal Charity Classic.

Lehman eagled the par-5 eighth and played a 10-hole stretch in 7 under before dropping a stroke on the par-4 18th. He had a 13-under 131 total, the best two-round score at Wakonda Club.

From neighboring Minnesota, Lehman has finished in the top 10 in each of his first six appearances in Iowa, but the 1996 British Open champion has never won the event.

"I made my share of putts. Made some longer putts I wasn't expecting, kept the ball in the fairway (and) did a lot of things right," Lehman said.

First-round leader Bernhard Langer had a 69 to fall into a tie for second with Glen Day (68), Woody Austin (68) and Scott Parel (66).

Kim, Herbin share lead in ShopRite LPGA: Sei Young Kim birdied seven of her last 10 holes for a share of the lead with Celine Herbin in the suspended second round of the ShopRite LPGA.

Kim was 10 under for the tournament with three holes left when play was suspended because of darkness.

Herbin had her second straight 5-under 66.

Hebrin birdied No. 18 after play resumed following a delay of nearly three hours because of lightning strikes in the area. The Frenchwoman left her job as a biochemical engineer at age 27 to become a professional golfer.

Kim, a six-time LPGA Tour winner, was one of 36 players unable to complete the round.

Mariah Stackhouse (65), Annie Park (65), Ashleigh Buhai (66) and Su Oh (two holes left) were two strokes back. Stackhouse is trying to become the tour's first black winner.

Two-time champion Anna Nordqvist had a 73 to drop from a tie for first to a tie for 34th at 3 under.

Auto racing

Dillon wins rain-shortened Xfinity race at Michigan: Austin Dillon and Daniel Hemric didn't have much time to battle for the lead after the final restart.

As long as one of them was in front when the rain came, Richard Childress Racing was going to win.

Dillon ended up beating his teammate Saturday in the rain-shortened NASCAR Xfinity race at Michigan International Speedway. The race was delayed around three hours at the start because of the weather, and there had been a threat of more rain for a while before the race was finally called after 91 of the planned 125 laps.

Dillon, in his No. 3 Chevrolet, fought with Hemric's No. 21 on a restart on the 89th lap, but the race went under caution again almost immediately because of the weather.

"We definitely needed that win for our Xfinity Series team," said Dillon, a Cup Series driver who won this year's Daytona 500. "It was great to have the 21 up there shoving me around. He had our back. If we didn't have the strategy, the rain coming, he was going to have a great shot to win also."
