SYLVANIA, Ohio -- Lydia Ko shot a 5-under 66 in windy conditions Friday for a share of the Marathon Classic lead with Hyo Joo Kim.The top-ranked Ko had six birdies and one bogey at Highland Meadows to match Kim at 8-under 134. Kim, tied for the first-round lead with Mirim Lee and Haru Nomura, had a 68.I think this is the windiest Ive ever played this course, said Ko, the 2014 tournament winner. In this wind and in the conditions, I feel like my score is a pretty solid one this morning.Ko, a 19-year-old New Zealander, won in consecutive weeks in Southern California this year. She tied for third last week in the U.S. Womens Open in California.I started off well with a birdie on my first hole, and then made a clumsy bogey on the next hole, Ko said. I hit a few good shots in. I had a few birdies where it was 3, 4, 5 feet. When you got those birdie chances makes it a whole lot easier.Kim won the season-opening event in the Bahamas for her third career title.Yesterday was way better, Kim said through a translator. Still today, I played great.Alison Lee and Ha Na Jang were a stroke back. Alison Lee birdied the last three holes for a 66.Finishing birdie, birdie, birdie was great, obviously, Alison Lee said. I havent had a good round like this in a while. To be honest, I struggled fairly a lot for the past like about four months. Feels great to shoot under par again.Jang shot 67. She has two victories this season.I think just be patient every hole, just fairway and the greens, Jang said. Because this golf course really small green. Just target is middle of the green.Mirim Lee had a 70 to drop into a tie for fifth at 6 under. Ariya Jutanugarn, the long-hitting Thai player who won three straight events in May, also was 6 under after a 69.Nomura was 5 under after a 71. Stacy Lewis matched her after a 68.Brittany Lang, coming off a playoff victory over Anna Nordqvist on Sunday in the U.S. Womens Open, shot a 69 to reach 3 under. Nordqvist was even par after a 72.Italys Virginia Elena Carta, the NCAA champion this year as a Duke freshman, was 2 under after a 69 in her first start in an LPGA Tour event.Second-ranked Brooke Henderson also was 2 under after a 72. The Canadian teen has two victories this year, beating Ko in a playoff in the major KPMG Womens PGA and successfully defending a title in Oregon.Defending champion Chella Choi missed the cut with rounds of 69 and 74. Last year, she beat Jang with a par on the first hole of a playoff for her first LPGA Tour victory.Michelle Wie also dropped out, following her opening 69 with a 77. Casey Cizikas Jersey . Zvonareva, who won the tournament in 2009 and 10, couldnt handle her opponents big groundstrokes in only her third event back after 17 months out with a shoulder injury. Zvonareva made her comeback in January in Shenzhen and played in the Australian Open but lost her first matches at both tournaments. Anders Lee Jersey . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. http://www.islanderssale.com/authentic-scott-mayfield-islanders-jersey/ . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. Andrew Ladd Jersey . By having more great seasons. Manning was the only unanimous choice for the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team Friday. Jordan Eberle Jersey .

He was dismissed by the team last March after the Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1 record. Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez will remain a starting pitcher as part of a six-man rotation, reversing the teams decision to shift him to the bullpen in an effort to limit his innings.The announcement came when general manager Ross Atkins spoke with reporters on Thursday.On Monday, the Blue Jays had said Sanchez would transition to the bullpen, the same day the team acquired lefty?Francisco Liriano from the Pittsburgh Pirates.The decision to keep the All-Star in the rotation came after midweek discussions with the team staff and players.The biggest thing is input from different people after something was more concrete, or closer to it, and the fact that Francisco Liriano was so open to everything, Atkins?told MLB.com. Then the more we thought about the potential of a six-man rotation not just benefiting Aaron but benefitiing the others in the rotation at this point in the season.ddddddddddddSanchez has had a breakout year in his first full season on the mound for Toronto. He leads the American League with a 2.71 ERA and is 11-1 in 21 starts.But the Blue Jays want to manage his innings, as he already is at a career-high 139 1/3 this season.His previous high was 133 1/3 between Double-A, Triple-A and the majors in 2014.Liriano went 35-25 for Pittsburgh from 2013 to 2015 while helping the Pirates to three straight playoff berths. He has struggled this season, posting a 6-11 record with a 5.46 ERA. He is signed through 2017 and is due $13.66 million next season.Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
