Friday's Golf Capsules

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kevin Na and Charlie Wi joined first-round leader Jhonattan Vegas at 12-under 130 on Friday to share the lead after 36 holes of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Play was suspended for 40 minutes because of lightning near the course and was halted again later with one player, Fran Quinn, having one hole to play. Quinn, who was 3-under, was expected to resume play at 7:45 a.m. PST on Saturday and the cut would be determined then.

Vegas was tied with William McGirt at 8-under 63 after the opening round at TPC Summerlin in the first of four Fall Series events.

Na had a bogey-free 63 that featured eight birdies, seven of them in his final 10 holes, while Wi, who was a stroke back after the first round, had a 66.

Brendan Steele, Kris Blanks and Tim Herron were one stroke behind the leaders.

Hunter Haas was at 132 after tying the course record with a 10-under 61.
