CONOVER, N.C., Sept. 15 (UPI) -- R.W. Eaks finished the first round belatedly Saturday with a 9-under 63 for a two-shot lead at the Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn in North Carolina.
Heavy rain had caused officials to halt the first round Friday with only 54 players out of 78 able to start.
The second round began Saturday while the first was finishing.
Bean defeated Eaks in a playoff last year.
