Pampling bounces back after poor start

Australia's Rod Pampling followed up his scintillating first-round 60 with a three-under 68 yesterday morning (Singapore time) to maintain a one-shot lead in the US PGA Tour tournament in Las Vegas.

Second-round play at TPC Summerlin was suspended because of darkness with 19 players still on the course.

Pampling's 14-under total of 128 put him one stroke in front of American Brooks Koepka (67).

Aaron Wise was 12 under for the tournament with four holes remaining when play was halted and Chris Kirk was in the clubhouse on 11-under 131 after a 65.

Pampling appeared to feel some let-down after challenging for a 59 on Thursday, opening with two bogeys in his first five holes.

He recovered by playing his last 13 holes in five under with six birdies.
