Three-way tie atop RBC Heritage leaderboard when play suspended

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 Friday when second-round play 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 play this morning.

Streelman, the Tampa Bay Championships last month for his first tour title, shot a 1-under 70 before the wind picked up to join Hoffman and LeBrun at 6 under. Hoffman also had a 70, and LeBrun shot 68.

Luke Donald and Bill Haas were a stroke back. Donald had a 68, and Haas shot 69.

Snedeker, ranked fifth in the world, was 2 over — one past the cut line — after a 71.

LPGA Lotte Championship

At Kapolei, Hawaii, Suzann Pettersen shot a 4-under 68 at wind-swept Ko Olina to maintain a one-stroke lead after the third round of the LPGA Lotte Championship.

The 32-year-old Norwegian, a 10-time LPGA Tour winner ranked sixth in the world, had a 14-under 202 total.

South Korea's Hee Kyung Seo was second after a 66, matching the best round of the day. She made three straight birdies on the back nine for a share of the lead, but dropped back with a bogey on the par-4 18th.

Greater Gwinnett Championship

At Duluth, Ga., Bart Bryant and David Frost topped the first-round leaderboard in the Champions Tour's rain-delayed Greater Gwinnett Championship.

The start of play was delayed four hours by rain. There were 57 players still on the TPC Sugarloaf course when the round was suspended because of darkness. Bryant completed a 4-under 68, and Frost was 4 under with five holes left. The first round will be completed this morning.

At Valencia, Spain, American Peter Uihlein shot a 4-under 68 to take a one-shot lead after the second round of the Spanish Open.

The former Oklahoma State player had six birdies and two bogeys at Parador de El Saler, leaving him at 6-under 138. Chile's Felipe Aguilar (71) was a stroke back along with France's Raphael Jacquelin (66) and Sweden's Rikard Karlberg (67).
