4-Way Tie Atop Colonial Through 36 Holes

The number of players leading the Dean & Deluca Invitational rose from four to three on Friday, but none of those who were leading the pack on Thursday remained there 24 hours later.

Webb Simpson, Kevin Kisner, Danny Lee, and Scott Piercy are the new co-leaders through Friday’s second round, all four of them tied at 6-under at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth,  Texas.

It’s hardly a safe lead. There are a full 20 golfers in the mix within five spots of the lead, including Masters champion Sergio Garcia and last year’s champion Jordan Spieth.

Lee has been particularly hot of late, with six straight rounds of 70 or lower.

Simpson as just 1-under through 15 before rattling off three straight birdies to end the round, including a 10-footer on No. 18.

Spieth almost missed the cut after winning near his hometown a year ago.  Starting on the back nine, he was 3-over through the first five holes, then turned it around to shoot 5-under the rest of the way and make it to Saturday.
