Walker seizes PGA lead but Simpson lurks
GREENSBORO, North Carolina (AFP) - American Jimmy Walker fired a bogey-free eight-under par 62 on Friday to seize a one-stroke lead in the second round of the storm-interrupted US PGA Wyndham Championship.
Walker stood on 12-under 128 through 36 holes, one stroke ahead of reigning US Open champion Webb Simpson of the United States, the defending tournament champion who fired a 63.
Spain's Sergio Garcia, Sweden's Carl Pettersson, American Harrison English and South Africa's Tim Clark shared third on 130 but players were scattered across the course, all with six holes or fewer to complete.
Walker birdied the second and third holes and closed the front nine with back-to-back birdies as well. He birdied the 11th and then charged in with birdies at the par-5 15th, par-3 16th and par-4 17th to grab the lead.
