Weather doesn’t throw Lowry off course at RBC Heritage

It was a stormy Friday around Harbour Town for the second round of the RBC Heritage. The front that moved thru brought heavy rain and wind and forced a nearly four hour stoppage in play. That did not leave enough daylight to complete the round when play resumed at 4:30 PM and the round was suspended at 7:47 PM. It will be picked up Saturday morning at 7:45.

And at the top of the leaderboard is the man who led after round one. Shane Lowry opened with a bogey free 65 on Thursday. Friday he pushed the number to -9 with four more birdies and his only bogey of the tournament thus far. Lowry was thru 16 holes when play was stopped. He has a one shot lead on Trey Mullinax who had a 68 Friday.

Irmo’s Dustin Johnson, the world’s top ranked golfer, is two back after a 67, giving him five rounds in the 60s over his last six trips around Harbour Town. Also at minus seven is Emiliano Grillo who recorded a double-eagle on the par five fifth, holing out from 254 yards.

Kevin Kisner is a three under and Jonathan Byrd is at one under. They could be the only other players from the state to make the cut which currently sits at even par. Mark Anderson has a chance as he’s three over with nine holes to play.
