    HAOTONG LI COULD BE THE FIRST Chinese player to lead a major championship at the end of a round. Li fired an early 65 on Friday at TPC Harding Park to finish at 8-under 132 after 36 holes. There were no bogeys on his card.

    Ranked 114th in the world, Li, 25, didn't expect much in San Francisco.

    "I didn't even think I could play like this this week," he said.

    Li added, "[H]ad no confidence."

    The man with no confidence started his second round with five birdies in his first 10 holes and then reeled off eight straight pars. He only hit four fairways.

    In his two previous starts, Li missed the cut at the Memorial Tournament and finished 75th in the 78-man field at last week's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

    At this moment, he leads the year's first major at the halfway point. Now what?

    "I've got no expectation, actually," Li said.
