Choi leads rain-delayed RBC Heritage
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - The second round of the RBC Heritage was cut short because of rain Friday, with K.J. Choi shooting a 4-under 67 for a one-stroke lead over Robert Allenby.
Allenby was among 65 players left on the course when the storm hit Harbour Town Golf Links. Officials delayed the round shortly before 3 p.m. and then suspended it until Saturday morning after waiting through about 90 minutes of steady, heavy rain.
Choi is at 5-under 137 after two rounds.
Former world No. 1 Luke Donald led a group of five at 3 under. Donald shot 69 and joined Billy Hurley III (69) and first-round tri-leader Scott Langley (73) in the clubhouse two shots behind Choi. Bo Van Pelt and Ben Martin were also at 3 under early in their rounds.
Haas withdraws with wrist injury
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Former FedEx Cup champion Bill Haas withdrew Friday from the RBC Heritage with a wrist injury.
Haas was the first-round leader at the Masters a week ago after his opening 68. But he followed that up with a 78 and eventually wound up tied for 20th. At Harbour Town Golf Links, Haas opened with a 1-over 72 that left him six shots off the lead shared by Matt Kuchar, Steven Langley and William McGirt.
Haas did not start his second round here.
Haas is ranked 31st in the world. He has won at least one PGA Tour event in each of the past four seasons, the2011 Tour Championship that secured him that season's FedEx Cup playoffs.
Haas is the son of former PGA Tour and Champions Tour winner Jay Haas.
