Watson in driving seat

Bubba Watson moved to the top of the leaderboard as second-round play finally got under way at the rain-hit Bob Hope Classic in California.

PGA Tour officials are planning for a Monday finish at the event after play was washed out on Thursday and delayed yesterday.

The soggy conditions did nothing to hamper Watson, however, as he followed up an opening six-under-par 66 on Wednesday with a seven-under-par front nine at the SilverRock course, to lead fellow American Alex Prugh by one shot.
