Kuchar takes 2-shot lead at halfway point

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Matt Kuchar expanded his lead to two shots at The Barclays without making a single par.

Kuchar played five holes Saturday morning to complete the second round at Liberty National. He made a 30-foot birdie putt for his first shot. He followed that with a bogey, made two short birdie putts and took bogey on the last. It led to a 6-under 65 and a two-shot lead over Webb Simpson and Gary Woodland.

Tiger Woods made a 10-foot birdie on the 17th and saved par from a bunker on the last hole to end his up-and-down round at 69. He was five shots behind.

Kuchar was at 11-under 131.

The tournament was delayed by six hours on Thursday because of rain. It was to be back on schedule by Saturday.
