Jin Young Ko leads, Laura Davies makes cut at Cambia Portland Classic

In her first tournament since competing in the Tokyo Summer Olympics, Jin Young Ko holds the 36-hole lead heading into the weekend at the LPGA’s Cambia Portland Classic.

Ko had six birdies and one bogey on her scorecard. She had six birdies Thursday as well but also had three bogeys in her opening round.

Ko, ranked second in the world, has one win this year, at the Volunteers of America Classic over the July 4th weekend. She is at 8 under so far in Portland.

The cut came in at 6 over, which safely put 57-year-old Laura Davies into the weekend. Davies shot a second-round 75 but is still 1 over for the tournament.

“I must admit in the practice the other day I found it really exhausting, but when you’re playing and trying to hit good shots, you don’t really notice the hills,” said Davies after Thursday’s round of the hilly Oregon Golf Club in West Linn, Oregon. Davies has made the cut in her last three tournaments. Fellow LPGA golfer Trish Johnson is working as Davies’ caddie this week.

Gemma Dryburgh is solo second after 36 holes at 7 under. Carlota Ciganda is solo third at 5 under. Jeongeun Lee and Jeongeun Lee6 are among seven golfers tied for fourth at 4 under.

The Cambia Portland Classic, the longest-running non-major tournament on the LPGA, was moved from Columbia Edgewater Country Club because of safety concerns about a homeless encampment in the area.

Fortinet Championship tee times, TV info for Saturday's third round

We head to the weekend in Napa, California, and Maverick McNealy leads after 36 holes.

On Friday, he followed up a 4-under 68 with an 8-under 64 to grab a two-stroke lead at the Fortinet Championship over Beau Hossler and Mito Pereira with a 36-hole total of 12-under 132.

On Friday, Phil Mickelson cracked his 2-wood and drove it left into the trees at the par-5 16th hole at Silverado Resort & Spa’s North Course, but as he’s done so many times before, he pulled a rabbit out of his hat and circled a birdie on the scorecard en route to shooting 3-under 69.

Jon Rahm, who withdrew from his pro-am round Wednesday with stomach issues, shot 72-71 and missed the cut by two strokes, giving him the weekend off before he heads to Wisconsin for the Ryder Cup.

From tee times to TV and streaming info, here’s what you need to know for the third round of the Fortinet Championship. All times listed are ET.
