Ireland's Padraig Harrington completed a four-under par 66 Saturday to seize a one-stroke lead over American Patrick Reed after the second round of the storm-hit US PGA Tour's Honda Classic. Harrington, a three-time major champion who has slid to 297th in the world rankings, could have enjoyed a larger margin but a bogey-bogey finish left him on seven-under 133 after 36 holes. "At times I get lost and distracted from the process," Harrington said. The 43-year-old Dubliner won the 2007 and 2008 British Open and 2008 PGA Championship, the last of those being his most recent PGA victory.
A ferocious winter ice storm forced the cancellation of several hundred flights at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Saturday as more than two inches snow blanketed the key transport hub, officials said. As of 9:30 am local time (1530), more than 350 flights from the airport, roughly 35 percent of the daily total, had been cancelled, a statement from the airport said. The statement said "over two inches of snow and an icy glaze" had covered the airport since Friday, forcing staff to deploy treatment trucks and snow plows to keep the airfield operational. Dallas/Fort Worth is ranked the third busiest airport in the world in terms of passenger traffic, with 62 million customers traveling through the transport hub each year.
