The first round of the Heritage concluded this morning without a change at the top of the leaderboard.

The first weather delay at the Heritage since 2007, when high winds forced the suspension of the final round and led to a Monday finish, caused Thursday's first round to be suspended by darkness with 18 players left on the course.

Garrett Willis slept on the lead at 7-under-par, one shot ahead of Matt Bettencourt, Chad Campbell, Arjun Atwal and Tim Herron, and he still had that one-shot advantage when the remaining players wrapped up their first round this morning.

As of 9:45 a.m., the early movers on the leaderboard during the second round were Camilo Villegas, who had tied the lead at 7-under, defending champion Jim Furyk at 6-under and former Hilton Head Island resident D.J. Trahan at 5-under.
