Australia's Senior leads Hawaii Championship

KAPOLEI, Oahu - Australia's Peter Senior shot a 7-under-par 65 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the Champions Tour's inaugural Pacific Links Hawaii Championship.

Winless in 65 starts in three seasons on the 50-and-over tour, the 53-year-old Senior birdied seven of the first 13 holes and closed with five pars in breezy afternoon conditions at Kapolei Golf Course.

"It'd be nice to have a win," said Senior, who has five runner-up finishes on tour. "I've come close."

Jay Don Blake and Bill Glasson were tied for second. Blake, coming off a victory three weeks ago in the Boeing Classic, finished with eight straight pars after making six birdies in an eight-hole stretch.

Wind wipes out play in Women's British Open

HOYLAKE, England - Play was called off for the day at the Women's British Open on Friday because of strong wind that disrupted the second round so badly that organizers declared early scores "null and void."

With wind gusting to 60 mph at Royal Liverpool, players struggled to keep the ball on the tees and greens. Felicity Johnson started with a quintuple-bogey 9. Cristie Kerr's ball blew off the 12th tee three times. Co-leader So Yeon Ryu bogeyed her only hole, the 10th, before play was stopped.

Ryu and fellow South Korean Haeji Kang topped the leaderboard at 2-under 70.

Honolulu's Michelle Wie was five shots back after a first-round 75.
