The first round could not be completed because of a two-hour fog delay on Thursday. McNeil had an 18-foot birdie putt on the eighth when darkness stopped play. He said he couldn't read the putt, so he decided to wait until the morning. He missed the birdie putt, and then made par at No. 9 for his 62.

McNeill had a one-shot lead over the well-traveled Brian Gay and Briny Baird, who finished their opening rounds on Thursday. Gay just returned from two weeks in Asia and is just now getting over the jet lag. The McGladrey Classic is the third leg in Gay's itinerary of four U.S. PGA Tour events in four countries in consecutive weeks.

The second round was underway on Friday in cooler, windier conditions.
