FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- They're done finishing a full day of golf at the 109th U.S. Open at Bethpage Black, where rain allowed less than 3 1-2 hours of play yesterday. Nobody completed their second round and about half the field never even started their second round.
Lucas Glover, who's never won a major, sits alone atop the clubhouse leaderboard at 6-under par through 13 holes of his second round. Ricky Barnes is one shot back at the halfway point of his second round.
Former Masters champion Mike Weir is tied with Todd Hamilton and Peter Hanson two shots back about halfway through their second round.
Tiger Woods ended up signing for a 4-over 74 after completing his rain-suspended first round. He never started his second round. Woods, the defending Open champion, is tied for 65th at this point, 10 shots back of overnight clubhouse leader Glover.
Phil Mickelson shot a first-round 69 and was 1 under for the tournament through 11 holes of his second round when play was suspended due to darkness.
The field will try to get an early start Saturday but it's beginning to look like the tournament will have to run until at least Monday to decide the national champion. More rain is in the forecast for Saturday on Long Island.
