Vaughn Taylor is leading the afternoon portion of the draw at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
The Georgian, who has two PGA TOUR victories, both of which came in Reno, has birdied four of his first eight holes. Taylor, who is currently 4 under, is looking to end a six-year victory drought.
Carl Pettersson and Ben Crane are 3 under through eight and six holes, respectively. Crane also has hit five more fairways -- which means another $500 for the St. Bernard Project that helps rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
