Defending champion Jacobson leads Travelers
CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) Defending champion Fredrik Jacobson shot a 4-under 66 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead in the suspended second round of the Travelers Championship.
The Swede had a 9-under 131 total. He's trying to join Phil Mickelson, the 2001 and 2002 winner, as the only players to successfully defend a title at River Highlands.
Charley Hoffman opened with five consecutive birdies and was a shot back through six holes when rain suspended play for the day. Nathan Green also was 8 under when the horn blew at 3:19 p.m. He finished nine holes.
It was the second weather delay of the day. The first lasted 70 minutes.
Blake Adams had a 64, the best round of the day, to join Stuart Appleby and Roland Thatcher at 7 under. Appleby had a 65, and Thatcher shot a 67.
