    Finau shoots 62, shares RBC Canadian Open lead with McIlroy

    Tony Finau birdied the final hole for an 8-under 62 and a share of the RBC Canadian Open lead with defending champion Rory McIlroy. "I didn't finish the way I wanted to yesterday and I think all it did was kind of light a fire in my belly to get after it today," Finau said on Saturday. "That's pretty much what I did. I made some birdies and I just played really clean golf." McIlroy had a 65 to match Finau at 11-under 199 at St. George's Golf and Country Club. "I'm just happy to give myself a chance, be in the final group," McIlroy said. "Once I saw, I think Tony had got to 10 or maybe 11, I think I was on like 8 or 9 at the time. I just said to myself, `Let's just try to get yourself in the final group.'" McIlroy had to wait three years to defend his 2019 title because of the COVID-19 pandemic that canceled golf's fourth-oldest championship the last two years. “I need to set myself a number and be super aggressive,” McIlroy said. “I know I'm going to have to make some birdies out there to win this thing tomorrow.”

    Ukraine: Russia said to be using more deadly weapons in war

    Ukrainian and British officials warned Saturday that Russian forces are relying on weapons able to cause mass casualties as they try to make headway in capturing eastern Ukraine and fierce, prolonged fighting depletes resources on both sides. Russian bombers have likely been launching heavy 1960s-era anti-ship missiles in Ukraine, the UK Defence Ministry said. The Kh-22 missiles were primarily designed to destroy aircraft carriers using a nuclear warhead. When used in ground attacks with conventional warheads, they “are highly inaccurate and therefore can cause severe collateral damage and casualties,” the ministry said.
