Shane Lowry still holds the lead with two holes of his second round to go at the RBC Heritage on the PGA Tour.

There was a delay of 3 hours, 43 minutes when strong storms that caused problems elsewhere in the Southeast this week struck Harbour Town Golf Links at Hilton Head Island. But Power was safely back in his hotel recharging for the weekend after a one-over 72 left him five shots behind clubhouse leaders Dustin Johnson and Emiliano Grillo on two-under par.

South Korea's KJ Choi, Taiwan's Pan CT and Slovakia's Rory Sabbatini were joined on 136 by American Troy Merritt, who completed a round of 67 on Saturday.

Lowry was among 56 players who was to return to complete the second round before starting the third. In all, 70 players made the cut.

After an opening round of six under par, Shane Lowry had three birdies in his first five holes to move to nine under par.

"It was hard all day", the world number one said. Lowry has his work cut out for him on Friday as there are two dozen golfers within three shots of the lead.

Ulster and Ireland's Rory Best to retire after World Cup
It was while on the 2017 tour that Best received an OBE in the Queen's birthday honors list. Best became Ireland's first-choice hooker at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

Grillo had an albatross on the par-five fifth hole when he holed his 254-yard second shot.

"It was probably blowing about 30 on that putt on that green so I had to back off", Mullinax said.

"It was a flawless shot", Grillo said. He stood over a birdie putt on his final hole, the ninth, when officials blew the horn and Johnson buckled his knees thinking he might have to mark his ball right there. "Perfect distance. flawless everything". It was just the second albatross at the event since 2007. Flawless wind. It went in, I think, perfectly.

Matt Kuchar, the 2015 champion, is tied for 18th after a second 69, two-time champion Boo Weekley totaled 70 and is tied for 29th, while defending champion Satoshi Kodaira of Japan finished at 68 and is in a tie for 51st that includes ninth-ranked Xander Schauffele of La Jolla and San Diego State, who wound up at 70.

"Luckily we could still play and finish the hole".

Ian Poulter and eight others were four behind Lowry at 5 under. "I haven't really finished the week off properly yet".
