Armour enjoys lead

RYAN Armour notched four successive birdies on his way to a second-round 68 and a one-shot lead at the Sanderson Farms Championship in Mississippi on Friday.

Armour got a little tentative on fast greens on his back nine but made it home safely to post a 10-under-par 134 halfway total at the Country Club of Jackson.

Tyrone Van Aswegen overcame a double-bogey and a bogey by reeling off 10 birdies, including two chip-ins, for a day's best seven-under 65 to trail Armour by a stroke.

Vaughn Taylor shot 66 to sit two back on a day when 30 players failed to complete the round before a series of afternoon thunderstorms halted play for the day.

Irishman Seamus Power was best placed, two shots behind with two holes left.

Armour once took Tiger Woods to 19 holes in the final of the 1993 U.S. Amateur Championship, but as professionals their careers went in different directions.

While Woods went on to win 14 major championships, Armour has never finished better than fourth in 104 starts on the PGA Tour, and only once before has enjoyed the 36-hole lead.

"I love it, that's why we play," he said of being out front.
