(Updates after play abandoned for day) PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida Feb 28 (Reuters) - Ireland's Padraig Harrington held the lead after the second round of the Honda Classic on Saturday with play abandoned in the afternoon because of severe rain. The rain wiped out the entire afternoon session, meaning the third round for most players will not begin until Sunday morning with a possible Monday finish looming. The 43-year-old Harrington shot a four-under par 66 for his second round at PGA National to go seven-under for the tournament. ...
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. Thunderstorms on Friday pushed the conclusion of the second round to Saturday morning and they returned Saturday afternoon to swamp the course at PGA National, wiping out play early. 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.

Sid Meier's Starships comes out on March 12, which isn't that far away. As such, I don't really want to delve too deeply into the game because, well, I'm going to have to write the whole thing up again in two weeks when we review it.But I did spend about an hour tooling around with a pre-release build earlier this week, and it only seems right to give you an idea how this spin-off strategy game (of sorts) is shaping up.Twilight ImperiumYou know that absurdly-complicated board game Ben Wyatt comes up with in Parks & Rec? "The Cones of Dunshire"? If you don't watch the show, here's a clip. If you don't feel like watching the clip, know this: It's identifiably a board game, except there are so many rules it's rendered practically unplayable in a normal tabletop setting.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Which is better: Doritos or Mountain Dew? It's a question that's plagued philosophers since at least the time of Plato. And now, thanks to Europa Universalis IV, it's a question that's been definitively answered...through science!Yesterday Paradox released the El Dorado expansion for Europa Universalis IV which has all sorts of probably-cool things like new ocean exploration mechanics, legendary cities to discover, et cetera.What it also has is a Custom Nation designer. Being a responsible reporter, I immediately used this for the dumbest of ideas: Creating a massive Doritos Empire and a smaller but just as powerful Mountain Dew monarchy, and then making the AI fight itself.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
