Mickelson amongleaders at Houston

HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — Phil Mickelson is among the leaders after shooting a bogey-free 4-under par 68 in his opening round of the Houston Open, showing no effects of the muscle pull that forced him to withdraw from last week’s Texas Open.

The five-time major winner, who practiced at Augusta National for two days this week in advance of the Masters, is three shots back of leaders Bill Haas and Charley Hoffman — both who shot 7-under 65.

Keegan Bradley and Matt Kuchar lead a group of five golfers at 6 under after Thursday’s play. J.B. Holmes, Erik Compton and Jim Renner are also at 6 under, while 10 golfers are at 5 under.

Former world No. 1 Rory McIlroy, playing in the afternoon on the 7,441-yard Golf Club of Houston, finished with a 2-under 70— five shots back of the lead. World No. 10 Dustin Johnson withdrew after an 8-over 80.

Shanshan Feng leadsKraft Nabisco

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) — Michelle Wie let a couple of shots slip away late Thursday afternoon in the Kraft Nabisco Championship, leaving her a shot behind Shanshan Feng.

Tied for the lead after playing a four-hole stretch in 5 under, Wie lipped out a 3-foot par putt on the par-3 17th and settled for par and a 5-under 67 after her wedge approach released long on the par-5 18th.

Feng shot a 66 in perfect morning conditions at Mission Hills in the first major championship of the year. The 24-year-old Chinese player had seven birdies and a bogey.

Se Ri Pak birdied her final hole in the afternoon to match Wie at 67.

Angel Yin, a 15-year-old amateur from the Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia, was another stroke back at 68 with Amy Yang.
