LA QUINTA, Calif. – Long-hitting Bubba Watson is using the wet weather to his advantage in the Bob Hope Classic.

Watson shot a 10-under 62 on Friday to take a two-stroke lead over Alex Prugh after the second round, which began and ended in driving rain.

The storm wiped out play Thursday and threatened Friday in the five-round, four-course event. There were just enough hours in between for an impressive day by Watson, who’s trying to show there’s more to his game than his jaw-dropping drives.

Watson still hasn’t won on the PGA Tour, but he showed off an improved putting stroke and capitalized on wet fairways at SilverRock.

First-round leader Steve Bertsch was three strokes back with three others at 13 under.
