Brian Gay used a run of five straight birdies to push past Todd Hamilton and take a one-stroke lead at the Verizon Heritage on Friday.

Gay, whose best season came in 2008 with his first victory and more than $2.2 million in earnings, had six birdies on his front nine on his way to a 66. He stood 9-under after two rounds at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Hamilton, the 2004 British Open champion, also shot a 66. He kept up his stellar play from a week ago when he tied for 15th at the Masters.

First-round leader Alex Cejka shot a 71 after an opening 64 and was two shots behind along with two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen.

Janzen's round of 70 included a hole-in-one on the breezy 17th
