      Diaz dominates day one of Marathon Classic

      Laura Diaz, winless in the past 12 years on the LPGA Tour, shot a 9-under 62 for a four-stroke lead after Thursday's opening round of the Marathon Classic.

      SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) - Laura Diaz, winless in the past 12 years on the LPGA Tour, shot a 9-under 62 for a four-stroke lead after Thursday's opening round of the Marathon Classic.

      It was a stunning score for Diaz, who has cut back on competitive golf to raise her two children. She hasn't finished inside the top 25 in a tour event since 2010 after winning twice in 2002 and playing in four Solheim Cups.

      She had nine birdies without a bogey, opening her round at No. 10 with birdies on her first five holes - missing a 7-footer for birdie on the 15th that would have matched a career best.
