By  | 

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Ricky Barnes is the leader at the halfway point of the rain-plagued U.S. Open.

Barnes set the tournament's 36-hole scoring record by finishing two trips around Bethpage Black in 8-under 132, one shot ahead of Lucas Glover and two shots ahead of Mike Weir.

The cut was 144, 4 over par, with 60 players - the minimum
possible - qualifying for the final two rounds.

Defending champion Tiger Woods was tied for 41st, 11 shots behind Barnes. The third round was to begin later Saturday afternoon.
