Hatton, Rose lead all-England leaderboard

NORTON, Mass. (AP) — Tyrrell Hatton one-putted six consecutive greens on his way to an 8-under 63 to share the early lead with Justin Rose in the Dell Technologies Championship.

The early half of the second round Saturday had an English look to it.

Along with Hatton and Rose (67) tied for the lead at 10-under 132, Tommy Fleetwood had a 65 and was two shots behind.

Hatton is getting a lot of mileage from a putter he bought last week at a golf store in New Jersey. It was his money, anyway. He sent his caddie to the store after the equipment trucks had left the tournament, and then he shot 65 with the new club. He was even better at the TPC Boston.

Tiger Woods was among those playing in the afternoon.

LPGA Tour

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Georgia Hall pulled away from Minjee Lee late in the third round Saturday to take a two-stroke lead in the Cambia Portland Classic.

The Womenás British Open winner four weeks ago for her first LPGA Tour title, Hall shot a 3-under 69. She birdied the par-3 16th and par-4 17th and made a 6-foot par save on the par-4 18th at tree-lined Columbia Edgewater.

The 22-year-old Englishwoman had an 18-uner 198 total. She opened with a 66 and shot 63 on Friday.

Lee had a 68. The Australian lost a share of the lead with a bogey on 17.

Marina Alex was third at 12 under, shooting her second 71 after opening with a 62.

Brittany Marchand (70) and Ayako Uehara (70) were 10 under.

Brooke Henderson had a 74 to fall into a tie for sixth at 7 under. The Canadian star, the 2015 and 2016 winner at Columbia Edgewater, won the CP Women’s Open last week on home soil in Saskatchewan.
