MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Ben Crane went more than 28 hours between competitive shots due to weather delays, and he stayed atop the leaderboard through six holes Saturday before another storm stopped play again at the St. Jude Classic.

Crane birdied his first hole, putting him at 13 under for the tournament. After that, no one got closer than four strokes at rain-softened TPC Southwind.

Troy Merritt, a group ahead of Crane, was at 9 under, with playing partner Peter Malnati at 8 under. Billy Horschel, Retief Goosen and Camilo Villegas were at 7 under on their front nines.

Phil Mickelson, who hasn’t won in 19 straight events dating to the British Open, had pars on each of his first nine holes and was at 5 under.

Notes

Jay Haas and Peter Jacobsen took the second-round lead in the Champions Tour’s Legends of Golf, teaming for a 6-under 48 on the par-3 Top of the Rock course in Ridgedale, Mo.

Haas and Jacobsen played nine holes of alternate shot and nine of better ball at Top of the Rock, the first par-3 course used in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event, after opening with a better-ball 62 on Friday on the regulation Buffalo Ridge layout. They had a 15-under 110 total, one stroke better than Jeff Sluman and Fred Funk.

In the Legends Division for players 65 and older, the teams of Jim Colbert-Jim Thorpe and Bruce Fleisher-Larry Nelson shared the lead at 7-under 118.

Shanshan Feng took a two-stroke lead in the LPGA Tour’s Manulife Financial Classic in Waterloo, Ontario, shooting a 4-under 67 .The 24-year-old Chinese player had a 15-under 198 total. Michelle Wie and second-ranked Inbee Park were tied for second.
