ATLANTA (AP) - Golf returned to Atlanta one month after the PGA Championship and hardly anything changed. Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner are still top of the leaderboard.

Bradley, who won the PGA in a playoff over Dufner about 40 minutes up the road at Atlanta Athletic Club, ran off four birdies on the back nine for a 6-under 64 to build a two-shot lead in the Tour Championship.

Dufner was crooked off the tee but managed a 66, along with Chez Reavie. Luke Donald, the No. 1 player in the world, was also 4 under through 17 holes when the opening round at East Lake was suspended by storms.

Bradley is a long shot to win the FedEx Cup, although a win could assure him a spot in the Presidents Cup.
