AVONDALE, La. – The final round of the Zurich Classic resumed at 5:30 p.m. ET on Sunday after more than a six-hour delay.

Barring any further suspension at TPC Louisiana, play should be completed by the end of the day Sunday. Sunset is 8:37 p.m.

None of the 36 groups on the course had completed their final rounds when play was suspended at 11:03 a.m. The first group, which teed off at 7:20 a.m., is through 13 holes.

The final group has played six holes so far.

The team of Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown made six consecutive birdies to start to erase a four-shot deficit and pass overnight leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith at 21 under par. Kisner has made five of those birdies.

Tee times were already moved up about four hours in anticipation of the severe storms that have already killed five people in Texas. The same system dumped more than two inches of rain in a two-hour span on Sunday.

Last year’s event was a Monday finish.
