Hadley closes in on win


Chesson Hadley moved a step closer to his first PGA Tour victory in seven years, opening a four-stroke lead over Harris English and six over Dustin Johnson yesterday in the raindelaye­d Palmetto Championsh­ip at Congaree in South Carolina. Hadley, English, Johnson and Lee Tain were all on the 18th hole when the horn sounded to stop play because of lightning. Hadley stands 19 holes away from closing out a surprising week with his second career tour victory after entering this tournament off five consecutiv­e missed cuts.
