ENDICOTT, N.Y., Aug. 18 (UPI) -- John Huston moved closer to defending his Dick's Sporting Goods Open championship Saturday, tallying a 5-under-par 67 in the event's second round.

Huston finished the day at 12-under-par 132, one shot better than Brad Faxon through 36 holes at the En-Joie Golf Club on a day when both the first and second rounds were completed due to Friday's rain.

The 51-year-old will be seeking his second overall Champions Tour crown Sunday.

Faxon grabbed second place at 11-under 133 after firing a 66 in the second round.

Tied for third at minus-9 were Willie Wood (68) and Peter Senior (67).
