MADISON, Miss. (AP) – Billy Horschel shot a 9-under 63 in the second round on Friday to take a one-stroke lead at the True South Classic.
Horschel played a bogey-free round and made eagle on both No. 5 and No. 18 for a 13-under 131 total.
Matt Bettencourt was one stroke back after a 65. First-round leader Jason Bohn was also at 12 under through nine holes and must finish his round Saturday morning.
It was a long day in the brutal Mississippi weather for Horschel, who fought a one-hour rain delay in the morning and temperatures that reached the low 90s in the afternoon. The 25-year-old played 31 holes on Friday, finishing his first round in the morning after thunderstorms ended Thursday's round early.
About half the field will have to finish the second round on Saturday.
