Thursday, 9:48 PM

Lee Mi-Rim of South Korea, seen in action during a golf tournament in Incheon, on October 17, 2014South Korea's Lee Mi-Rim had seven birdies without a bogey in a seven-under par 65 to take a one-shot lead in the LPGA Kia Classic. Lee, who missed the course record at Aviara Golf Club by one stroke, on Thursday birdied all four of the par-five holes, taking the lead with an eight-foot birdie putt at her 14th hole of the day -- the par-five fifth and adding one more birdie at the eighth. "My long game didn't feel good, my swing didn't feel good, but I made a lot of putts," said Lee, winner of two LPGA titles last year who had a one-stroke lead over former world number one Tseng Ya-ni of Taiwan. Tseng, chasing her first LPGA victory since a 2012 win in nearby La Costa, capped her 66 with a four-foot birdie at 18.


Peugeot French production increase earns presidential visit

Employees of French carmaker PSA Peugeot Citroen work on the new engine "EB" assembly line at the company engines factory in Tremery near MetzBy Laurence Frost PARIS (Reuters) - PSA Peugeot Citroen said on Friday it had chosen a French factory over a rival Spanish plant to expand engine production, prompting a visit by President Francois Hollande to highlight a bright spot in France's gloomy labor market. The eastern French plant beat out Peugeot's factory in Vigo, Spain, for the additional 200,000 engines per year. Manufacturing boss Yann Vincent said Peugeot's decision reflected "work done by the Trémery site to meet competitiveness targets", including productivity concessions by unions. The new production will bring no net increase in jobs, Vincent said, and the plant's 3,700-strong workforce is still expected to decline through attrition.
