LUTZ, Fla. -- Morris Hatalsky finished an opening-round 68 and followed with a 67 Saturday afternoon for a 7-under-par 135 and a two-stroke lead in the rain-shortened Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am. Hatalsky was one of just 22 players to complete the second round of the event, which was cut to 36 holes. The remainder of the tournament is scheduled to be played today, although heavy rain is forecast and the conclusion could be pushed back to Monday. Hale Irwin moved into contention with three straight birdies and an eagle on his way to 5 under in the first round. The winner of last month's Turtle Bay Championship in Hawaii only got in three holes of the second round and was 6 under when play was suspended. Wayne Levi also completed the second round, posting a 68 to finish at 137, along with Don Pooley. D.A. Weibring and Tom Kite finished at 138.
