MADISON, Miss., Sept. 28 (UPI) -- David Branshaw had birdies on the final two holes and finished with a 4-under 68 Friday to take a one-shot lead at the Viking Classic in Madison, Miss.

Half the field had to complete the first round Friday after a long weather delay had disrupted play Thursday. All but six players were able to finish 36 holes Friday, with Branshaw recording a 10-under 134.

This is the first 36-hole lead of Branshaw's PGA Tour career.

Bill Haas shot a 67 to move into a tie for second at 135 with Cameron Beckman (70). J.P. Hayes (68) was alone in fourth at 136.

Six players are tied for fifth at 137. First-round leader Briny Baird shot a 78 and fell into a tie for 28th place at 141.

Among those surviving the 36-hole cut were John Daly at 140 and David Duval at 141.

Duval, who once was ranked No. 1 in the world, is playing in his first tournament since February.
