GREENSBORO, N.C. Carl Pettersson supported moving the Wyndham Championship to Sedgefield Country Club. After a performance like this, it's easy to see why.
The local favorite produced the latest record-breaking round at Sedgefield, shooting a tournament-record 61 on Friday to match the PGA Tour's 36-hole mark at 15-under 125. He opened with a 64 on Thursday.
He had a three-stroke lead over Garrett Willis (64). Scott McCarron (64) was four strokes back, and Kevin Streelman (64) was another shot behind. Jerry Kelly (65), Bob Sowards (66) and Tim Clark (67) were 9 under.
But clearly, the day belonged to Pettersson, a Swede who went to high school in Greensboro, played at North Carolina State and serves on the tournament's board.
Play was delayed late in the day for 1 hour, 11 minutes because of rain.
CANADIAN WOMEN'S OPEN: At Ottawa, defending champion Lorena Ochoa shot a 4-under 68 to take a two-stroke lead during the suspended second round of the Canadian Women's Open, while Michelle Wie had a 70 to put herself in position to make the cut.
Ochoa, the winner last year at Royal Mayfair in Edmonton, Alberta, had a 10-under 134 total on the tree-lined Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club course.
Australia's Katherine Hull matched the course record with a 65 to join Taiwan's Yani Tseng, the McDonald's LPGA Championship winner, at 8 under. Tseng was 6 under through 10 holes when play was suspended because of hail and rain.
None of the afternoon starters finished the round.
Wie, using the last of her six 2008 LPGA Tour sponsor exemptions, followed her opening 75 with the 70 to finish at 1 over. Wie needs to win or finish second to avoid a trip to Q-school if she decides to try qualifying.
Nicole Castrale (69) was 7 under, and Se Ri Pak (70) was another stroke back. Annika Sorenstam was 5 under with eight holes left.
JELD-WEN Tradition: At Sunriver, Ore., two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer shot a 6-under 66 in 100-degree heat for a share of the second-round lead with Tim Simpson in the JELD-WEN Tradition, the fourth of the five Champions Tour majors.
Langer and Simpson had 10-under 134 totals at the Crosswater Club. Simpson shot a second straight 67 despite hip and back problems that he said could jeopardize the rest of the tournament for him.
Fred Funk (66), Jay Haas (68) and Mike Goodes (68) were a stroke back, and Tom Watson (64) followed at 8 under. Defending champion Eduardo Romero, the U.S. Senior Open winner, was 5 under after a 65.
Langer, a two-time winner this year and the Champions Tour's money leader, was 12 under after birdieing eight of the first 15 holes. But the German star dropped two strokes with bogeys at 16 and 18.
SAS MASTERS: At Stockholm, Sweden, Sweden's Peter Hanson and England's Nick Dougherty shot 4-under 66s for the second straight day to share the lead in the SAS Masters.
Hanson, trying to become the first Swede to win the PGA European Tour event since Jesper Parnevik 10 years ago, had a bogey-free round on the Arlandastad course.
Dougherty, the runner-up last year, had two bogeys. But the Englishman finished strongly with birdies on three of his last four holes.
