IRVING, Texas -- Keegan Bradley couldn't follow up his course-record first round. But he still holds a three-stroke lead at 11 under after two rounds at the Byron Nelson Championship.

 
Tom Gillis, who shot the day's best score with a 63, and Sang-Moon Bae (66) tied for second, three strokes back of the lead.
 
Bradley has history here - his  first PGA Tour victory came two years ago at The Nelson. He's clearly more comfortable on this course than most.
 
Irving was abuzz with talk of Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese amateur who made a name for himself by playing at The Masters and becoming the youngest player to ever make the cut on the PGA Tour. But Tianglang won't be featured in the Nelson's final two days - he missed the cut with rounds of 70 and 77. 
 
Defending Nelson champion Jason Dufner, star of the 'Dufnering' trend, shot his second consecutive 70 to make the cut of even par.
