Jason Day has 3-shot lead in suspended Players Championship

May 13, 2016

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Jason Day finished with two big birdies as the sky darkened Friday to reach 14 under and stay in firm control of The Players Championship.

Day rolled in a 40-foot putt down the slope on the par-3 13th, and then hit a 5-iron into 2 feet on the next hole to stretch his lead to three shots over Shane Lowry on another day of low scoring at the TPC Sawgrass.

A two-hour storm delay meant the second round could not be finished.

Lowry holed out from the fairway on the 18th for eagle and had three birdies on the front nine for a 68 to get to 11-under 133.


Jordan Spieth was in danger of missing the cut, as was Phil Mickelson.

Defending champion Rickie Fowler appeared certain to miss the cut when the second round ends Saturday morning.
