White Sulphur Springs, WV (Sports Network) - U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson
fired a 4-under 66 on Friday to take the lead at the Greenbrier Classic.
However, the event's second round was not completed because of inclement
weather in the afternoon that forced a delay of more than two hours. Play
resumed in the early evening, but 15 players weren't able to complete their
rounds before darkness fell.
Second-round play will resume Saturday at 8:30 a.m. (et).
Simpson was able to get through his 18 holes and is the clubhouse leader at 9-
Charlie Beljan had fired an 8-under 62 in the morning to climb to the top of
the leaderboard at minus-8. He was bumped down by Simpson, and shares second
with Jonathan Byrd (68), Jeff Maggert (68) and Jerry Kelly (66). Martin
Flores, who was 2-under through 16 holes of his second round, is also at 8-
under for the championship.
Two players who won't see the weekend are Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
Woods, last week's winner at the AT&T National, shot a 1-under 69, but that
wasn't enough for him to recover from an opening 71. He finished 36 holes at
even-par 140, one stroke below the projected cut.
Mickelson carded a second consecutive 1-over 71 to fall to plus-2.
First-round leader Vijay Singh struggled to a 4-over 74 to finish two rounds
at 3-under 137.
