Golf: Six are tied for lead at Sanderson Farms Championship
Madison, Miss. • Six players are tied atop a crowded leaderboard midway through the second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.
Vaughn Taylor, Fabian Gomez, Paul Stankowski, Troy Matteson and Kyle Reifers are tied at 10 under in the clubhouse. First-round leader Daniel Summerhays also is at 10 under but only completed eight holes in the round Friday.
The six have plenty of company behind them, with eight players within two strokes.
Play was delayed for the second straight day at Annandale Golf Club because of lightning close to the course. The afternoon session was unable to finish after a delay that lasted more than two hours.
Stankowski is the most unlikely name among the leaders. The veteran is playing in his first PGA Tour event of the season and hasn't won since 1997.
Former winner Paula Creamer shares the lead and top-ranked Inbee Park is lurking nearby through the second round of the Marathon Classic in Sylvania, Ohio.
Creamer, who five years ago won what was then referred to as the Jamie Farr LPGA stop, shot a 3-under 68 on Friday on the heels of an opening 66 to pull even with Beatriz Recari and Alison Walshe at 8-under 134.
Vaughn Taylor -10
Fabian Gomez -10
Paul Stankowski -10
Troy Matteson -10

Daniel Summerhays (through eight) -10
