With weather a potential hurdle, players hit Harbour Town Golf Links on Thursday knowing they needed to take advantage of the scoring conditions. On Friday, the goal became to simply maintain as the field tries to make the weekend at the RBC Heritage.

Charley Hoffman and Kevin Streelman, who started the day a shot out of the lead, did better than maintain. Each shooting a 1-under 70, they moved into the lead. Steve LeBrun went the extra mile with a 3-under 68 to join them at 6 under par through two rounds.

First-round leader Brian Davis slid on the front nine and dropped well off the pace.

5 Things: Cut line in limbo with Round 2 in overnight delay

• • •

Update #28: 6:29 p.m.

Play has been suspended, with 17 golfers needing to finish their rounds Saturday morning.

Perhaps the most drama surrounds Jesper Parnevik. On the cut line at 1 over, he faces a par putt to start his day tomorrow and keep himself in weekend play. Then again, a miss could move the cut line to 2 over.

Camilo Villegas, like Parnevik, missed the 18th green with his last approach shot of the round. He'll try to get up and down to stay at 3 under, three back of the co-leaders.

• • •

Update #27: 6:15 p.m.

Camilo Villegas birdies No. 17 and heads to the last tee hoping to pull within two of the lead.

Around the cut line, Greg Owen and Casey Wittenberg gain a stroke and climb to 2 over, Owen in the clubhouse and Wittenberg with two to play, while Glen Day drops a shot but finishes at 1 over and stands to play tomorrow.

• • •

Update #26: 6:01 p.m.

Camilo Villegas and Henrik Norlander could still make a run to get closer to the lead, all at 2 under. Villegas most recently birdied No. 14 and has two holes to play, but it's Norlander who's really making a charge – he's birdied three of his last four and still has 4 holes to play as he'll end his day on the front nine.

On the cut line, Jason Bohn makes his second straight birdie to get to 1 over, which would get him a tee time tomorrow if things hold steady.

• • •

Update #25: 5:48 p.m.

Eleven golfers are still on the course and within two strokes of the projected cut line of 1 over.

• 1 under: Brian Davis (through 15 holes), Lee Williams (14)

• Even: Troy Matteson (17), Glen Day (16)

• 1 over: Jesper Parnevik (15)

• 2 over: Ryan Palmer (15), Nicolas Colsaerts (15)

• 3 over: Greg Owen (16), Jason Bohn (15), Daniel Summerhays (15), Casey Wittenberg (13)

• • •

Update #24: 5:38 p.m.

Stewart Cink finds the fairway with his last tee shot of the day, then takes aim at the pin from about 90 yards out but can't hold the green. He chips about two feet past the hole but misses his comebacker and cards his only bogey of the day, finishing with a 69 that's good for 3 under through 36.

Marc Leishman also misses his final approach shot of Friday's round, pitching beneath the wind to inside two feet and makes his comebacker for a 71, good for 4 under through 36.

Jason Day, who had birdied No. 16 to get back within three shots of the co-leaders, bogeys No. 18 to end his day with a 73, good for 2 under through 36.

• • •

Update #23: 5:25 p.m.

Bill Haas comes to his final hole of the day with a chance to join co-leaders Charley Hoffman, Steve Lebrun and Kevin Streelman at 6 under. He drives it to the right edge of the No. 9 fairway, then wedges it to about 10 feet. His birdie attempt rolls past and he sinks the comebacker to stay T-4, one off the lead, with Luke Donald. "It was playing tough; I did not play all that well, actually . . . To get out of that round with only one bogey, I'm very pleased," he tells the Golf Channel.

Marc Leishman drops from the T-4 group after missing a three-footer for par on No. 17, and will play his last hole of the day trying to break out of a bunch that's eight men deep at T-6.

Stewart Cink will do the same, walking to the No. 9 tee with a bogey-free day intact and looking for his fourth birdie.

Update #22: 5:11 p.m.

A look at the top finishers from the Masters who chose to play in this week's RBC Heritage shows many still are carrying a hot hand into Hilton Head Island, S.C. Here's a recap of how some are faring: (champion Adam Scott and runner-up Angel Cabrera are among those who took the week off):

Jason Day (3rd at Masters): Two over today through 15 after an opening-round 68, he's 2 under for the tourney.

Marc Leishman (T-4 at Masters): One under today through 15 after an opening-round 67, he's 5 under for the tourney.

Matt Kuchar (T-8 at Masters): Two over today with a 73 after an opening-round 71, he's 2 over for the tourney.

• • •

Update #21: 4:55 p.m.

Bill Haas and Marc Leishman join Luke Donald at 5 under, a stroke back of the lead. Haas cards birdies Nos. 5-6 and follows with a par, leaving him two holes to play, while Leishman birdies No. 15.

• • •

Update #20: 4:37 p.m.

Another double bogey near the top of the leaderboard: Webb Simpson cards a six at No. 13; he falls from T-4 with Luke Donald, one back of the lead, to join a group of nine at 3 under and T-12. Pat Perez, who had doubled No. 16, steadies himself with a par at No. 17.

• • •

Update #19: 4:23 p.m.

Pat Perez double-bogeys the par-5 No. 16 after driving the ball out of bounds; his wedge from 140 yards spins back from the hole and off the green, then he cannot execute the up-and-down for bogey. At 4 under with two holes to play, he's among a group of nine at T-6.

• • •

Update #18: 4:08 p.m.

Pat Perez pars No. 15 to remain part of a four-way tie for the lead at 6 under with Charley Hoffman, Steve LeBrun and Kevin Streelman, all in the clubhouse. Perez is 3 under today, just one off the pace for the low round of the day, which belongs to Matt Jones and Graeme McDowell, both done for the day with 67s. McDowell is two off the lead, while Jones' round got him one inside the cut line at even par.

Brian Davis, making the turn, bogeys No. 18 – his fourth in a row – dropping the first-round leader to 1 under.

• • •

Update #17: 3:56 p.m.

Marc Leishman, coming off his strong Masters performance, makes a fairly lengthy downhill par putt that breaks left-to-right and has just enough speed to get into the cup at No. 11. Leishman stays at 4 under, two back of the lead, while playing partners Webb Simpson and Jason Day also par to remain at 5 under and 2 under, respectively.

• • •

Update #16: 3:44 p.m.

Marc Leishman: Even through 10 to remain 4 under.

Jason Day: Two over today through 10 to drop to 2 under.

• • •

Update #15: 3:15 p.m.

James Driscoll will probably miss the cut this week at Harbour Town Golf Links, but not without doing some good first. Driscoll pledged to donate $1,000 per birdie he made this week to Boston Marathon victims for The One Fund Boston. He made seven birdies, meaning $7,000, when he shot 74-70. Driscoll still considers Boston home. 50 of his friends were near the finish line on the day of the bombing. Two of them were in between the two explosions that went off on Monday.

• • •
