Haas still leads at Memorial but Schwartzel narrows gap to 1 after completing 2nd round

Charl Schwartzel made the most of an early start to move within a shot of leader Bill Haas early Saturday morning during the completion of the rain-delayed second round of the Memorial Tournament.

Rory McIlroy needed to rally to get up and down from 45 yards just to make the cut.

Play was suspended for the third time on Friday night with 42 players still on the course. Haas, who followed an opening 68 with a 67 before the heavy weather came in, was safe and secure in his hotel with a three-shot lead overnight.

First-round leader Schwartzel began play on the 16th hole Saturday with a par, then birdied the final two holes to put the finishing touches on a 71 that left him at 136.
