The Associated PressApril 19, 2013 

England’s Brian Davis took the first-round lead in the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head Island, S.C., while Australians Jason Day and Marc Leishman rebounded from disappointment at the Masters to get in contention.

Four days after countryman Adam Scott became the first Aussie to win the Masters, Day and Leishman shot 4-under 67, two shots behind Davis on Thursday at Harbour Town.

Hot in Hawaii

Defending champion Ai Miyazato had five birdies in a six-hole stretch at wind-swept Ko Olina in Kapolei, Hawaii, to lead the second round of the LPGA Lotte Championship at 9-under 135 after a 68.

Miyazato began her birdie spree with a 12-foot putt on the par-4 third, made a 25-footer on the par-3 fourth, and followed with a 10-footer on the par-5 fifth. After a par on the sixth, she holed out from 12 feet on the par-4 seventh and rolled in a 20-footer on the par-3 eighth.
