Golf: Kuchar takes charge at Barclays' halfway point with two-shot lead
JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (REUTERS) - Matt Kuchar completed a round of six-under-par 65 early on Saturday morning to claim a two-stroke lead after 36 holes of The Barclays, the opening event of the FedExCup play-offs.
Kuchar was at 11-under 131, with 2012 US Open champion Webb Simpson and long-hitting Gary Woodland tied for second at 133 at the halfway mark of the weather-hit tournament.
World No.6 Kuchar returned with 39 other players to complete the second round and put the event back on track after thunderstorms caused more than six hours of delays on Thursday's opening day.
The 35-year-old Kuchar birdied three of the five holes he had left to play, rolling in a 28-foot putt at the par-three 14th, and bogeyed the two others including the 18th.
