Kevin Na had gone 26 holes without a bogey at Colonial before his last tee shot Friday was swept away by flowing water after going into a rain-swollen drainage culvert. Not even that could dampen Na's second round that gave him the lead halfway through the soggy tournament. At 10-under 130, he was two strokes ahead of Ian Poulter (67) and three up on 2013 Colonial winner Boo Weekley (69).
Due to the expectation of inclement weather, including the possibility of severe storms Saturday afternoon, the PGA Tour said Friday that players in the third round will be grouped in threesomes instead of the normal twosomes and go off both tees Nos.
After winning two titles in three weeks, Rory McIlroy ran out of steam. McIlroy missed the cut at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Friday after an erratic 6-over 78 at the European Tour's flagship event. A week after winning the Wells Fargo Championship by seven shots, the top-ranked Northern Irishman made six bogeys and a double bogey on the par-four 11th, leaving him at 5-over 149 and four strokes outside the cutline.
