COQUITLAM, BRITISH COLUMBIA — Massey holds on for one-shot lead in du Maurier

COQUITLAM, British Columbia -- Debbie Massey missed a short par putt on the final hole yesterday, but still managed to establish a one-shot lead after 36 holes in the du Maurier Classic golf tournament.

Massey stabbed a 2-footer wide of the cup on 18 to finish the second round with a respectable, 2-under-par 70 for a 36-hole total of 7-under 137.

She had a one-stroke lead over Trish Johnson and Dottie Mochrie at 138.

"I did not adjust as well to one nine as the other," Massey said after a 1-over 36 on the back side. "It's a totally different ballgame on those greens."

Hardee's Golf Classic

COAL VALLEY, Ill.

COAL VALLEY, Ill. -- Leonard Thompson, who flirted briefly with Al Geiberger's all-time PGA record of 59 for 18 holes, finished with an 8-under 62 to grab the lead midway through the $1 million tournament.

Thompson, who has a 36-hole total of 11-under 129 for a one-shot advantage over Paul Azinger, said he thought about the possibility of challenging Geiberger's round at Memphis, Tenn., in 1977.

"It crossed my mind at the turn. I shot 30 on the front nine," said Thompson, who had eight birdies and no bogeys for the day. "Then I parred [holes] 1, 2 and 3, and I blew that away."

Azinger shot his second consecutive 65 for 130.
