VALDOSTA - Even a trip to a course close to home this week for the South Georgia Classic couldn't help Albany's Josh Broadaway break out of a career-worst slump.

Broadaway missed the cut at the Nationwide Tour's stop at Kinderlou Forest in nearby Valdosta on Friday as he shot a 78 on Day 2 to go along with his 73 on Day 1 for a two-day total of 151 -- well short of the cut line of 145.

Broadaway has now missed the cut in four of five events he's played this year. The only cut he did make was the first tournament of the year, the Panama Claro Championship, in which he finished 42nd.

Canada's David Hearn, meanwhile, held his Day 1 lead at Kinderlou, posting rounds of 64 and 69 to break the tournament's two-round record as he sits at 11-under, followed by Jason Kokrak (67), Tag Ridings (69) and Michael Putnam (68).

CHAMPIONS TOUR:

SAVANNAH -- A pair of Buckeyes were doing their best to hold off a team with five majors between them at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf.

John Cook and Joey Sindelar, who have known each other since their college days at Ohio State, shot a better-ball 10-under 62 on Friday to share the first-round lead with Mark O'Meara and Nick Price in the Champions Tour event.

Fred Couples, a three-time winner in five starts on the 50-and-over tour, and Jay Haas were a stroke back along with Blaine McCallister-Bob Tway and Brad Bryant-Lonnie Nielson. Ken Green, making his first Champions Tour start since having his lower right leg amputated after an auto accident in June that killed his brother and girlfriend, teamed with Mike Reid for a 67.

PGA TOUR:

Lee Janzen, Alex Cejka, Brian Davis, Greg Owen and Jason Bohn were tied for the lead at 7 under when second-round play in the Zurich Classic was suspended because of heavy rain.

Lightning forced the suspension of play at 12:57 p.m., and heavy rain continued for hours at TPC Louisiana. Play was officially called for the day at 5:21 p.m.

Janzen (66), Davis (66) and Alex Cejka (67) completed the second round, and Owen had one hole left. Bohn wasn't able to start the round.

Only 47 players finished the round.
