With a weather delay pushing play at the Colonial later than expected and a good portion of golfers through 36 holes, Graham DeLaet sits atop the leaderboard -- although Round 1's best Ryan Palmer still has yet to start play.
DeLaet had an up-and-down day, with seven pars tempered by four bogeys to finish at 3-under for the round. He improved his driving from his first day of play, but often struggled to find the green with his second shot, then made up for it with strong putting. The Canadian known for his brightly colored pants currently sits at 9-under, hoping to win his second professional event and first on the PGA Tour.
Josh Teater and Jordan Spieth kept pace with DeLaet by also shooting 3-under to finish the day at 8-under on the tourney. They're joined in a tie for second with Steve Flesch, who climbed the leaderboard with a 6-under, and Palmer, the hometown favorite. With a 4:43 Eastern start time, Palmer might have trouble finishing his round Friday.
Elsewhere on the leaderboard, Freddie Jacobson is alone in third at 7-under, Matt Kuchar is the most notable of a host of golfers tied at 6-under, and Zach Johnson -- who has won the event two of the last three three years -- isn't making much headway on the leaderboard, currently at 1-under as he begins his round.
Notables below the projected -1 cut line include Charl Schwartzel (E), Ben Crane (2), and Vijay Singh (4)
