RICHMOND, Texas (AP) — John Engler of Augusta, Ga., took the clubhouse lead at 5-under 139 Sunday in the rain-delayed second round of the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championships.

Engler was among the players who completed the 36-hole qualifying before rain and lightning halted play at Shadow Hawk Golf Club for the second straight day.

The top 64 stroke-play scorers will compete in match play to determine the champion.

Engler shot a 4-under par 68 in the first round and birdied his final hole Sunday for a 71.

Kevin Pomarleau of East Wenatchee, Wash., started Sunday at 4 under and made the turn at 7 under, but ran into trouble with a pair of double bogeys and shot a 72 to finish at 140.
