Round 3 of the Zurich Classic has been suspended due to inclement weather conditions at TPC Louisiana.
Jason Day was the second round leader early on Saturday, after the resumption of play for those who did not finish on Friday.
Jason completed his second round on Saturday with a -7 under par 65 which put him on top of the Zurich Classic leaderboard at -12 under par;
“We finally got the round in; knock on wood.”
“That was my first storm delay of the year, so hopefully no more would be nice. But I’m happy where I’m at.”
“Hopefully, this weather will stay away.”
Hudson Swafford had to settle for second place, having finished his round on Friday, at -11 under par. He was joined on that score by Daniel Berger and Chris Stroud.
Boo Weekley, who got to -12 under par Friday, came back to finish on Saturday, must have been the local food that got to him, and dropped a shot to finish with -2 under par and in the log jam at -10 under par for he competition.
If this inclement weather continues to halt play in the Zurich Classic, there is the possibility that the tournament could be shortened to less than 72 holes, this is because of the mid-week start at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play in San Francisco.
Five Match Play qualifiers missed the cut at the Zurich Classic, Rickie Fowler, Jamie Donaldson, Marc Warren, Harris English and John Senden.
Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Billy Horschel, Keegan Bradley, Bernd Weisberger and Marc Leishman all made the cut, and Zurich Classic officials will provide a chartered flight to San Francisco for them.
Lets hope for a break in the weather and trust that the tournament gets completed in regulation time.
