The 20 golfers still left on the TPC Southwind course when severe thunderstorms stopped the St. Jude Classic have concluded the first round Friday with Lee Westwood still leading by a stroke after his opening 7-under 63.
The PGA Tour started the second round as scheduled with the 20 golfers getting a 45-minute delay before wrapping up their final holes. None of the late finishers cracked the leaderboard through the first 18 holes.
Casey Wittenberg is a stroke back after a 64 in his first PGA event this year, and Padraig Harrington had a 65.
Defending champ Brian Gay, who shot under par each round in winning here a year ago, opened with a 73. Jordan Spieth, the Texas teen who became the sixth-youngest player to make a PGA cut at the Byron Nelson last month, shot a 73.
