JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Webb Simpson has found enough birdies on long, tough and wet Liberty National for a 3-under 68 to build a two-shot lead in the Barclays, the opening playoff event on the PGA Tour.

Simpson, a 24-year-old rookie, took the outright lead with an approach to 10 inches on the fifth hole Friday. He was among nine players who broke par Friday, finishing at 8-under 134.

Paul Goydos and Steve Marino, among the leaders after the opening round, each had a 71 and were tied for second. The other leader, Sergio Garcia, played in the tougher morning conditions and had a 76.

Tiger Woods bogeyed his final hole for a 72 and was eight shots behind. He refused to speak to the media for the second straight day.
