Macon's Russell Henley Leading PGA Tournament in Hawaii
HONOLULU (AP) - Two days into his PGA Tour career, Russell Henley was on his way to breaking a record.
Henley had another 7-under 63 on Friday in the Sony Open and wound up with a two-shot lead over fellow rookie Scott Langley among early starters in the second round. He was at 14-under 126, which breaks by two shots the 36-hole record at this tournament.
In the first full-field event of the season, the two rookies are leading the way.
Langley finished with three straight birdies for a 66, a solid effort after opening with a 62. Depending on afternoon play, they would play together a third straight day, this time as the final group. They first were linked as low amateurs in the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
