Haas In The Hunt At Hilton Head

Posted: Updated:

Bill Haas' quest to win the PGA tourney in his home state is very much alive as the Greer resident fired a two under 69 Friday to move to five under par through two rounds at the RBC Heritage.

Haas played the back nine first in even park and then had three birdies and a bogey on the front.

Kevin Streelman, Charley Hoffman and rookie Steve LeBrun were tied for the lead, and Brandt Snedeker was on the verge of missing the cut Friday when second-round play was suspended for the day because of rain.

 

Conditions worsened throughout the day and 17 players were unable to finish at Harbour Town Golf Links. They will resume play Saturday morning.

 

Streelman broke through for his first career tour victory at the Tampa Bay Championships last month. He shot a 70 before the wind picked up to join Hoffman and LeBrun at 6 under. Hoffman also had a 70, and LeBrun shot 68.

 

Luke Donald is tied with Haas a stroke back. Donald had a 68.

 

Snedeker, ranked fifth in the world, was 2 over - one past the cut line - after a 71.

    South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier felt it would take time to turn the Gamecocks from a mid-level program into a Southeastern Conference power, so he's a bit surprised when outsiders wonder why he's entering his 10th season at the school.
