A poor second round of 76 has seen Kiwi golfer Danny Lee drop down the leaderboard at the RBC Heritage tournament in South Carolina to a share of 96th.

Inclement weather meant not every player could complete their second round today but after Lee's five-over effort he is all but certain to miss the cut given he is at six-over for the week, with the projected cut line at three-over, after he opened with a one-over 72 yesterday.

When play was called off for the day, Manawatu professional Tim Wilkinson was in a share of 16th at one-under for the tournament, although he had only played three holes in his second round.

Korean KJ Choi held the clubhouse lead after completing two rounds to sit at five-under.

Meanwhile, on the LPGA Tour, Lydia Ko dropped to a tie for 27th after shooting a two-over 74 in her third round at the Lotte Championship in Hawaii today.

Ko is one-over for the tournament, 14 shots back from runaway leader Angela Stanford who carded a five-under 67 on moving day to shoot to 13-under for the week.
