John Oda overcame a double bogey Monday to maintain his lead at the Tour's season opener.

The UNLV product offset his double on the par-4 fifth hole with six birdies as part of a second-round, 4-under 68. At 13 under, Oda leads the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay by two shots over Marty Dou, who carded a second-round 66.

For the second straight day, play was suspended because of darkness. Three groups will have to finish their second rounds Tuesday morning, including that of former U.S. Amateur Public Links champ Byron Meth, who at 1 over through 17 holes is one shot below the cut line.
