    PGA: Quicken Loans National - Second Round(Reuters) - Spain's Jon Rahm kept up his impressive professional debut by posting a four-under-par 67 to share a three-shot, second-round lead with local favorite Billy Hurley III at the Quicken Loans National on Friday. Overnight leader Rahm, the former Arizona State golfer who was the low amateur at last week's U.S. Open at Oakmont, held sole possession of the lead before missing a four-foot par putt at the last in Bethesda, Maryland. Hurley, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate who calls nearby Annapolis his home, fired a six-under 65 to join playing partner Rahm on 11-under-par 131 at Congressional.

    NEWS: Erskine FireBy Noah Berger KERN COUNTY, Calif. (Reuters) - A fast-moving central California wildfire that more than doubled in size on Friday has killed two people and destroyed 100 structures, prompting Governor Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency for a fire-ravaged county. The so-called Erskine Fire broke out on Thursday afternoon in the foothills of Kern County about 42 miles (68 km) northeast of Bakersfield, and three firefighters were hospitalized for smoke inhalation, officials said. The Kern County Fire Department said on Friday afternoon two people had died, though it did not identify the people or release further details.

    Golf - Singh, Els lurk while Rahm, Hurley share PGA leadFiji's Vijay Singh, trying to become the PGA's oldest winner at age 53, and Ernie Els, trying to end a three-year title drought, moved into contention Friday at the National. Unlikely co-leaders Jon Rahm, a 21-year-old Spaniard in his professional debut, and Billy Hurley, a 607th-ranked local product seeking his first PGA win, shared the top spot on 11-under 131 after 36 holes of the Tiger Woods-hosted event at Congressional Country Club. "Us old guys can still play a bit," Els said.
