Langer leads halfway through Senior PGA on Trump course

Bernhard Langer of Germany gives a fist pump as he birdie's the ninth hole during the final round of the Senior PGA Championship at the Trump National golf club in Sterling Va. Sunday

Bernhard Langer of Germany gives a fist pump as he birdie's the ninth hole during the final round of the Senior PGA Championship at the Trump National golf club in Sterling Va. Sunday

Still, neither Singh's bum foot or Langer's balky knee have impeded their bid to win the oldest senior major, with one shot separating them going into the final round at Trump National Golf Club in Sterling. He tied Jack Nicklaus' record with his eighth major since turning 50 last week with a five-shot victory at the Regions Tradition.

Vijay Singh was one shot back after a 66 at President Donald Trump's course on the Potomac River, about 25 miles from Washington.

G-7 source: US gets more time for climate pact answer
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the G-7 leaders "put forward very many arguments" for the USA sticking with the agreement. The gap between Trump and other G-7 leaders on climate underscored his isolation from Europe on some major issues.

Langer was at 12-under 132. Among them was Bernhard Langer, who made two straight birdies to pull within two shots of Singh at the turn. On the 11, Langer's approach found a hazard right of the green, but it was playable, and he got up and down for par while Singh missed a short birdie putt. Bob Estes shot 67 and was alone in fourth, five shots behind.

The 54-year-old Singh still plays primarily on the PGA Tour and is making his first start in the Senior PGA. Now, he's not sure. "I got up early at 5 a.m. and went through my stretching routine and stuff and then heard about the delay, so sat around for an hour and a half, got all stiff again, so that part didn't help". He's just been a very nice, extremely nice person with a lot of good advice he's given me over the years about certain things.

Have Warriors and Cavs sucked the drama from the National Basketball Association ?
They're 12-0 thus far, compared to 12-5 through three rounds a year ago , when Durant's Thunder pushed them to seven games. The Los Angeles Lakers had set the previous record of 12 straight wins in potential elimination games from 2000-2004.

Lee Janzen, Scott McCarron and James Kingston also were two shots behind Langer. That's a common talk on this tour, what is hurting today and what was hurting last week, but it's great to be out here with these guys.

Singh doesn't expect to intimidate Langer, even with his distance advantage. "He's a got game plan, and he's a pretty hard competitor to break".

Cavs and Warriors go at it again for title
Deron Williams, who had been quiet for most of the series, also got in on the act with a series-best 14 points for Cleveland. Their postseason effective field goal percentage of 59.8 percent is the highest in National Basketball Association history.
