Cleveland Golf offers extremely limited run of Tour Rack wedges (PGA) There are limited editions and then there are limited editions. Cleveland Golf this week said it is making available to the public a special version of its Tour Rack wedges which previously had been made strictly for tour players -- like Graeme McDowell, who has one in the bag this week at the RBC Canadian Open.

And because there are so few of them, they're available only at a handful of retailers. They carry a suggested retail price of $250, and you can call Cleveland at 800-999-6263 to find the retail location nearest you.
Riley, Zalatoris reach US Junior final (The Associated Press) Davis Riley outlasted Sam Horsfield on the 21st hole Friday in the U.S. Junior Amateur to set up an all-American final against William Zalatoris. ''It was a fun day today,'' Zalatoris said. Last year, Riley lost 3 and 2 to Scottie Scheffler at Martis Camp in Truckee, California.
Jarrod Lyle followed his opening 4-under 67 with a 69 in windy conditions Friday in the Web.com Tour's Midwest Classic, leaving the Australian seven strokes behind leader Zack Sucher in his first U.S. event since his second bout with leukemia. The 32-year-old Lyle had four birdies and two bogeys in the second round to reach 6-under 136 at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate.
(Reuters) - Canada's Graham DeLaet has his sights set on ending one of golf's oldest title droughts, and was in "a great position" just two shots behind leaders Jim Furyk and Tim Petrovic after the Canadian Open second round in Montreal. No Canadian has won the country's national open since Pat Fletcher in 1954, and DeLaet will start the weekend within striking distance after reeling off nine birdies in a seven-under-par 63 on Royal Montreal's Blue Course on Friday. Not since Mike Weir led at the halfway mark 10 years ago has a Canadian been so well-placed after two rounds. Left-hander Weir went on to lose to Vijay Singh in a playoff.
A switch in pairings led to a change in fortune for the United States in the International Crown. Coming off a dismal showing in the opening round, the U.S. shuffled its lineup and got the desired result, beating Spain twice Friday to earn its first points in the eight-country competition. Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr took control on the back nine against Belen Mozo and Beatriz Recari in a 3-and-2 win, and Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis held on to beat Azahara Munoz and Carlota Ciganda 2 up. One day earlier, the top-seeded U.S. lost twice to Taiwan and was the only country without a point.
Two-time winner Jim Furyk birdied two of his last four holes Friday in the Canadian Open to match the Royal Montreal record at 7-under 63 and tie Tim Petrovic atop the leaderboard. The 44-year-old Furyk, the 2006 winner at Hamilton and 2007 champion at Angus Glen, matched Petrovic at 10-under 130 on the tree-line Blue Course. ''Winning any event is special,'' Furyk said. ''I have been hitting the ball really well for about the last three weeks,'' Petrovic said.
