Furyk Grabs Early Share Of Second-Round Lead At Heritage

   Defending champion Jim Furyk shot 5-under par 67 Friday morning to gain a share of the lead midway through the second round of the Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links.

    Furyk is at 8-under par where he's tied with Jason Day, runner-up in the Masters two weeks ago, and Camilo Villegas, who is showing signs of breaking out of a prolonged period of flat play. Ben Crane moved to 7-under par through the morning round, pulling even wtih first-round leader Garrett Willis, who plays in the afternoon.

   Tim Herron, a late starter, made two early birdies to also reach 8-under par early in his second round.

   Among the players likely to miss the cut are Rickie Fowler, Lucas Glover, Zach Johnson, Davis Love III and Ernie Els.
