MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Ben Crane shot a 5-under 65 Friday grabbing a six-stroke lead during the rain-delayed second round of the St. Jude Classic at the TPC Southwind.
Crane birdied his final hole Thursday night for a 63 and rolled in a 44-footer for birdie to start Friday morning en route to a round with six birdies and one bogey. That gave him a 128 total through 36 holes and a 12 under that matches the winning score here a year ago.
Davis Love III (70) and Billy Horschel (68) were in at 5 under.
Phil Mickelson at 3 under and Retief Goosen at 4 under are among those waiting to tee off. But lightning forced a 59-minute lightning delay followed by the horn blowing again only 13 minutes after players returned to the course.
