Golfer Lahiri’s fifth after incomplete round 2

Fort Worth (Texas), May 28 (IANS) Poor weather conditions halted leading Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri’s second round play of the Dean and Deluca Invitational, finishing fifth after an eventful 12 holes at the Colonial here.

The 28-year-old, who fired a five-under to stay joint second after the first round, on Friday started with a 24-foot eagle and a birdie in the first two holes.

But four bogeys and a single birdie in the next seven holes saw him turn in even-par before a birdie on the 10th meant he was one-under and had six more holes to play when darkness enforced an early end to the day’s play.

Lahiri is now six-under through 30 holes and three behind first round leader Bryce Molder, who was nine-under after being three-under through 15 in second round after play was delayed by more than three hours earlier in the day.

Lahiri started his round late in the evening and was unable to finish the round.

As play was stopped, Lahiri was among 61 of the 121 players still on the course, who will return to complete the second round on Saturday morning local time. The third round will be played after the cut is made.

At nine-under, Molder was a stroke ahead of Webb Simpson (65-67) and two in front of second-ranked Jordan Spieth (67-66) and Patrick Reed.

Simpson (67) and Spieth (66) had completed their rounds, while Reed, 65 in first, was two-under through eight in second. Reed had 10 holes left.
