Furyk still in lead at Barclays

Saturday, June 25, 2005

HARRISON, N.Y. -- Jim Furyk holed out from 153 yards for an eagle 2 on the eighth hole and finished with a par for a 2-under 69 and a one-stroke lead over Brian Gay after the second round of the Barclays Classic.

The nine-time PGA Tour winner, fully recovered from a wrist injury that sidelined him for most of the first half of last season, had an 8-under 134 total on the hilly, tree-lined Westchester Country Club course in Harrison, N.Y. He took a three-stroke lead into his morning round after opening with a 65 Thursday afternoon.

Gay birdied three of the last five holes for a 66 Friday.

Padraig Harrington (65), Len Mattiace (65), Kenny Perry (68), John Senden (67) and Hidemichi Tanaka (68) were tied for third at 6 under.

Champions tour

Leonard Thompson shot a 66 at the par-72, 6,728-yard Nashawtuc Country Club in Concord, Mass., to take a one-stroke lead over Tom McKnight, Mark McNulty, Walter Hall and John Harris at the Champions Tour's Bank of America Championship. .

Seven golfers were another stroke back at minus 4 -- including Dana Quigley, the tour's leading money earner who won the last tournament two weeks ago for his sixth consecutive finish in the top seven.
