HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- Kevin Streelman, Charley Hoffman and rookie Steve LeBrun were tied for the RBC Heritage lead, and Brandt Snedeker was on the verge of missing the cut when Friday's second round was suspended for the day because of rain.
Conditions worsened throughout the day and 17 players were unable to finish at Harbour Town Golf Links. They will resume Saturday morning.
Streelman, who had his first career tour victory at the Tampa Bay Championship presented by EverBank last month, shot a 70 to join Hoffman (70) and LeBrun (68) at 6 under.
Luke Donald (68) and Bill Haas (69) were a stroke back.
In the second round of the RBC Heritage, Jerry Kelly holes a birdie chip shot on the par-4 16th hole.
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- For the next two weeks, James Driscoll will donate $1,000 for every birdie he makes to the One Fund Boston, formed by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help aid the victims in Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon.
Friday at the RBC Heritage, Driscoll shot 70 with three birdies, bringing his donation up to $7,000 for the week. Read more

"This is just a spectacular golf course. To me it's one of
the best we play. I think most anyone will say it,
especially the veterans. You just have to respect it.
You can't overly attack it, and kind of take what it
gives you and hope your putter is hot."
-- Kevin Streelman, a winner five weeks ago at
Innisbrook, on Harbour Town.
“Even though it's a four-hour drive from my house, it
still feels like hometown. It's got that hometown feel.
My parents met here, we joke that this is probably the
reason I exist, the fact that they got together at this
tournament. Hilton Head, and where we vacationed a
lot. It means a lot to our family.’’
-- Bill Haas, a Greenville, S.C., native, on playing in the
annual PGA TOUR stop in South Carolina.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- After a double bogey on the 16th hole Friday at Harbour Town, the old Pat Perez might have continued his slide and bogeyed his way in.
But this is the cooler, calmer Perez, who has been working this season with mental coach Chris Dorris in Phoenix.
The idea, Perez said, was to try to turn negatives into positives.
"It's hard, especially for me, because I've done it my whole life," Perez admitted. "But to say, 'That's not going to bring me down, let's try to make 5 instead of 6.' And the next hole it's basically done."
It worked Friday. Read more
