David Toms finished at 4-under-par 66 just ahead of a downpour yesterday during the second round of the NEC Invitational in Akron, Ohio, leaving him the clubhouse leader.
Toms was at 5-under 135, although still three shots behind Stewart Cink.
Cink played eight holes in the morning to polish off a 7-under 63. He was at 8 under and facing a 25-foot birdie putt on the 11th hole when play was suspended.

PGA champion Vijay Singh, who only needed to finish higher than Woods at Firestone to become No. 1 for the first time in his career, was 5 over for the tournament with three holes left in his round.

In the other semifinal, Chris Nallen plays Luke List. Nallen beat Dayton Rose, 6 and 5, in the easiest match of the day. List was a 3-and-2 winner over 47-year-old Danny Green, who was the oldest player in the field.
