Sports World: Ryu takes halfway lead at Meijer Classic

Ryu takes halfway lead at Meijer Classic

CHICAGO • Ryu So Yeon, who is seeking her first win this year, shot a five-under 67 to seize the sole lead at the halfway stage of the LPGA's Meijer Classic on Friday.

The former world No. 1 got off to a smooth start with back-to-back birdies on her opening holes, but then carded three bogeys in five holes before the turn. She righted the ship coming home, however, with five birdies on the back, including three straight beginning on the par-three fourth hole.

The 27-year-old South Korean finished with a 13-under 131 and has a one-shot lead over Germany's Sandra Gal and Sakura Yokomine of Japan, who both shot 64 at the Blythefield Country Club course in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

LONDON • Former world No. 1 Andy Murray will return to competitive action after almost a year's hiatus at next week's Queen's ATP tournament, organisers announced yesterday.

The 31-year-old has not played a competitive tennis match since he was knocked out of the Wimbledon quarter-finals last July, a hip injury ending his season.
