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.

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