CROMWELL, Conn. Defending champion Fredrik Jacobson is in a familiar spot at the Travelers Championship.
For the second year in a row, Jacobson had a 9-under-par 131 total for 36 holes, following his opening 65 with a 66 Friday.
And for the second consecutive year, bad weather delayed completion of the second round by one day.
The Swede wouldn't mind if history kept repeating itself.
He's trying to join Phil Mickelson, the 2001 and 2002 winner, as the only players to successfully defend a title at TPC River Highlands.
"Any tournament is tough to win," Jacobson said. "To win two in a row is probably tougher. But you know, you have the thing going for you that you have some good memories to draw from, so hopefully that allows a little bit to increase your chances."
Charley Hoffman opened with a par and birdied the next five holes to move within a stroke of the lead before rain suspended play for the day.
Nathan Green was 8 under when the horn blew at 3:19 p.m. He finished nine holes.
It was the second weather delay of the day. The first lasted 70 minutes.
Jacobson played before the rain came. He started on the back nine and followed up two birdies with an eagle on the 13th hole.
He hit his second shot 240 yards over the water and onto the green, and made a 40-foot putt on the par 5.
Blake Adams had a 64, the best round of the day, to join Stuart Appleby and Roland Thatcher at 7 under.
The threesome of U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, Masters champ Bubba Watson and reigning PGA champion Keegan Bradley were a combined 2 under par Friday, after shooting a combined 10 under in the first round.
Simpson was 5 under overall after a 69, Bradley 4 under after his second straight 68, and Watson 3 under after a 71.
First-round leader David Mathis fell back to 3 under with a 73.
Simpson says he'll likely skip the British Open, and the decision will be an easy one: Family comes first.
Simpson's wife, Dowd, is due to give birth to the couple's second child in late July, and he says he plans to be home in North Carolina with her when that happens.
LPGA Tour in Waterloo, Ontario South Korea's Inbee Park birdied her final two holes for a 7-under 64 and a one-stroke lead in the inaugural Manulife Financial LPGA Classic.
The 2008 U.S. Women's Open champion had a 9-under 133 total at Grey Silo. She holed a 50-foot putt on the ninth hole for the last of her eight birdies, had one bogey and only 22 putts.
Seven players were unable to complete play because of darkness. Rain on Thursday forced the suspension of first-round play until Friday morning, delaying the start of the second round.
China's Shanshan Feng, coming off a major victory two weeks ago in the LPGA Championship, was a stroke back along with Brittany Lang and South Korea's Hee Kyung Seo. Feng and Seo shot 68, and Lang had a 65.
