Ohio: Kenny Perry continued his great run of form on Friday, carding a 4-under-par 68 to grab the halfway lead at the Memorial tournament in Dublin, Ohio. Perry, who won last week's Colonial, carded a 4-under-par 68 to lead by a stroke from Retief Goosen and Lee Janzen. Charles Howell III held the overnight lead after a stunning first round 64 on the Muirfield Village course. But he couldn't maintain his position on Friday, carding a 2-over-par 70, which left him 5 shots off the pace. Lee Janzen birdied the 16th hole on his way to a second consecutive round of 67. He's 10-under for the tournament, level with another former US Open champion, Retief Goosen. The South African also had a 67, which included a number of superb iron shots. Janzen and Goosen are a stroke behind Kenny Perry, who won the Memorial in 1991. (AP)
