Shane Lowry still leads at weather affected RBC Heritage on PGA Tour

The 34-year-old - who sits 10 under through 54 holes - leads Ian Poulter (67), Rory Sabbatini (68) and Lowry (71).

Lahiri hit eight of 18 greens in regulation during his second round.

Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland, who won the tournament in 2013, was 2-under for the day through 13 holes and also in the tie for seventh with K.J. Choi of South Korea, who was 4-under for his round after 14, and Troy Merritt, who was 3-under through 12.

Amid heavy winds, there were a few big rounds to be had on the course, but only a handful of them as Masters runner-up Johnson earned the lead. Two holes later, Lowry added his third bogey after going the first 48 holes with just one.

He was a shot ahead and nine under overall with two greens to go when his round was truncated, leaving him three under through 16 holes at a stormy Hilton Head.

Dustin Johnson, known for length off the tee, showed off his precise ball-positioning and hot putter Saturday to take the RBC Heritage lead at Hilton Head Island, S.C.

He was at eight under after a 65 on Thursday. He jumped all over the course as quick as he could with birdies on the first and second holes before storms swept the island resort area in the second round.

It left the Irishman one stroke ahead of American Trey Mullinax, who completed a second-round 68 on Friday before darkness stopped play with 56 golfers still on the course after storms halted play for almost four hours.

Lowry was among 56 players who was to return to complete the second round before starting the third.

Ji had a 15-under 129 total to break the tournament 36-hole record by five strokes.

Cantlay shot 64-68 last week at the Masters and had a 66 to lead a group of six at 8 under. He stood over a birdie putt on his final hole, the ninth, when officials blew the horn.

Was there some secret to Johnson's play?

Grillo made the shot of the tournament when he holed his second shot from 254 yards for a double eagle on the par-5 fifth hole.

Grillo closed his round perfectly too, with a hole-out from 37 yards away on the tricky ninth hole.
