SYDNEY (AP) Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott went in opposite directions at the Australian Open on Friday while Matt Jones used home-course advantage to shoot a 3-under 68 and take a three-stroke lead after two rounds.

Jones, a member at The Australian Golf Club, had a 36-hole total of 7-under 135 on a course that was playing only slightly easier after Thursday's brutal wind and heat when only 18 players broke par.

Australian Todd Sinnott was in second place after a 70, while Spieth, who shot 68, and playing partner Geoff Ogilvy (71) were in a group of five tied for third, four behind Jones.


Scott slides at Aussie Open with 73

SYDNEY (AP) A "flat" and tired Adam Scott shot a 2-over 73 at the Australian Open on Friday, a round that allowed him to make the cut but likely did little to help him end his 2015 victory drought.

Scott, playing for the sixth time in eight weeks, was right on the cutline when he finished his second round just before midday Friday, but he eventually was two inside the 4-over cut mark. He was tied for 34th and nine strokes behind second-round leader Matt Jones. Read More...

New stars to give Kapalua strong field

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) The start of a new year on the PGA Tour at Kapalua lost some sizzle when Tiger Woods stopped going after 2005, which was four years after Phil Mickelson decided to go to Hawaii only for a vacation.

And when the PGA Tour went to a wraparound season two years ago, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions was in an awkward spot. Yes, it was the first event of the year, but the season had started three months earlier. Read More...

LPGA team event moves to Merit Club

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) The LPGA Tour is moving the International Crown to the Merit Club outside Chicago next year.

The match-play event among eight countries was to be held July 21-24 at Rich Harvest Farms in the southwestern Chicago suburbs. The LPGA didn't say why it was moving from the home of the 2009 Solheim Cup. Read More...

Spieth wants to play in Rio Olympics

SYDNEY (AP) Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott, the two headliners at this week's Australian Open, have distinctly different excitement levels over next year's Rio Olympics golf tournament.

While both agree a team competition would have been nice, Scott says he'll go if he can fit it into his schedule, and isn't very enthused. On Tuesday, however, Spieth said count him in unless he's injured or, by some miracle, the world's top-ranked golfer fails to qualify. Read More...

At 18, Ko set to dominate LPGA for years

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Lydia Ko had just been handed a $1 million bonus for the second consecutive year, and the first thing she thought about buying with those newfound additional riches was a new phone.

She's had a bunch. She keeps dropping them.
