Jim Furyk finished off a second-round 66 Saturday to join K.J. Choi and Clemson’s Ben Martin tied for the lead halfway through the rain-delayed RBC Heritage.

Furyk, the 2010 champion, was among 65 golfers who hadn’t finished Friday before play was halted due to heavy rains. He stood at 5-under 137 after posting the round’s best score. The three are two shots ahead of a group of 11 that includes Masters contender Matt Kuchar and former world No. 1 Luke Donald.

Martin also had his round delayed by Friday’s rain and shot a 68 while Choi finished Friday. Martin led at 6 under before a bogey on No. 9, his final hole.

Beaufort native and University of South Carolina golfer Mark Anderson made the cut on the number of 4 over. It’s his first made cut this season.

Those missing the cut included Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson, five-time champion Davis Love III and CBS Sports analyst Nick Faldo, playing here for the first time since 2006.
