JERSEY CITY - Matt Kuchar edged past clubhouse leaders Webb Simpson and Gary Woodland on Friday as darkness halted play in the weather-disrupted Barclays, the first event in the US PGA Tour playoffs. Kuchar had five birdies and no bogeys through 13 holes of his second round and was 10-under for the tournament when play was suspended. He'll return on Saturday morning to try to seal the 36-hole lead. Former US Open champion Simpson had made a marathon day look easy, firing a second-round 66 to take the early clubhouse lead on nine-under 133. He was joined late in the day by Woodland, who notched a sparkling 64 that included eight birdies and a bogey. Simpson and Woodland were two strokes clear of their nearest rivals in the clubhouse. –AFP
