Glover, the 2009 U.S. Open winner, shot a 5-under 67 to reach 12 under at TPC Louisiana.

Weekley had a 68. He holed out with a wedge from 105 yards for an eagle on the par-4 10th, his first hole of the round.

D.A. Points was 10 under after a 68. Morgan Hoffmann was three strokes back at 9 under after a 69, and Ernie Els had a 69 to reach 8 under. Els lost a playoff to Jason Dufner last year in the event.

Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese amateur playing on a sponsor exemption, followed his opening 72 with a 69 finish at 3 under to make the cut. He tied for 58th two weeks ago in the Masters after becoming the youngest player to make the cut at Augusta National, and said Thursday that he will play in a U.S. Open qualifier in two weeks in Dallas.

Bubba Watson, the 2011 winner, rebounded from an opening 73 with a 65 to reach 6 under.

Dufner was 3 under after a 71.

NORTH TEXAS LPGA SHOOTOUT

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Caroline Masson bogeyed three of her last four holes for an even-par 71, leaving her with a one-stroke lead after the second round of the inaugural North Texas LPGA Shootout.

The German player was 7 under overall at Las Colinas Country Club. She opened with a bogey-free 64 on Thursday. Spain's Carlota Ciganda was second after a 70.

South Korea's Inbee Park, the No. 1 women's player in the world, was third at 5 under along with Moriya Jutanugarn, an 18-year-old LPGA Tour rookie from Thailand, and Kathleen Ekey.

Masson was 10 under and up by four strokes before her drive at No. 15 went left and rolled right across the sloping fairway into the water. She missed the fairway again at Nos. 16 and 18, with her first and seconds shots on the final hole both stopping behind trees.

LEGENDS OF GOLF

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Brad Faxon and Jeff Sluman teamed to shoot a 10-under 62 in better-ball play to take the first-round lead in the Champions Tour's Legends of Golf.

Faxon had seven birdies at the Club at Savannah Harbor.

Champions Tour points leader Bernhard Langer and Tom Lehman were second.

Eight-time major champion Tom Watson and Andy North were 8 under along with the teams of Craig Stadler-Kirk Triplett and Tom Kite-Gil Morgan.

BALLANTINE'S CHAMPIONSHIP

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Australia's Wade Ormsby and Thailand's Arnond Vongvanij shared the lead in the suspended second round of the rain-plagued Ballantine's Championship.

Ormsby had a 5-under 67 at Blackstone Resort to match Arnond (69) at 7 under.

After the first round was delayed Thursday by fog and rain, play was stopped Friday for more than an hour because of an electrical storm, leaving more than half the field to complete the second round Saturday.

The tournament is sanctioned by the European and Asian tours.
