Brian Barnes, a burly Briton accustomed to playing in bad weather, shot a 5-under-par 67 on a Friday that featured rain, hail and lightning, earning a share of the lead in the $1.1 million Canada Senior Open.

Barnes was at 136, 8-under for two rounds of the 6,942-yard Glencoe Golf & Country Club course. Four back at the start of the day, he forged into a tie for the midway lead with Tom Jenkins, who shot a 71 Friday."I would love to do this on a regular basis," said Barnes, 53, a two-time British Senior Open winner. "It was one of those rounds that was easy and I put the ball in the position that I wanted to, other than the second hole, to give myself any palpitations. "

Barnes' round was delayed by rain and lightning as he was finishing the 17th hole. He had to wait almost 90 minutes before resuming.

Utahn Bruce Summerhays held a piece of the 18-hole lead but a 73 Friday left him at 138, one shot back of Walter Hall, who shot a second-round 68.

Larry Laoretti had a 66, best of the day, and was at 139.

LPGA FRIENDLY'S CLASSIC: First-round leader Heather Daly-Donofrio and second-day upstart Marilyn Lovander were tied for the lead near Friday's midway point of the storm-marred LPGA Friendly's Classic in Agawan, Mass.

Both had 7-under-par 137 totals, although Daly-Donofrio wasn't able to play her final hole because of the heavy rain and electrical storms.

Lovander, with the help of a 30-foot eagle putt on No. 7, had a 68 Friday. Daly-Donofrio carded a 5-under 67 in the first round and was two under Friday going to the 18th tee.

One stroke behind tour rookie Christy Erb who had a second 69.

Lovander, a 43-year-old who said she didn't pick up a golf club until she was 19 and turned pro at 30, made her surge when she followed the eagle with a birdie on No. 8. She was playing the front nine last.

Two strokes behind the leaders at 139 were Charlotta Sorenstam, who had a 70, and Val Skinner, who had a 71.

Things didn't fare too well for Elizabeth Janangelo, a 14-year-old amateur who was playing her first LPGA tour event. Janangelo, from West Hartford, Conn., failed to make the cut after an 82 left her at 168.
