Impending weather suspends Rd. 2 at AT&T


BETHESDA, Md. – Following a familiar trend on the PGA Tour this season, second-round play at the AT&T National was suspended because of impending inclement weather.

Officially, play was suspended at 2:44 p.m. ET with dangerous conditions in the area. It was scheduled to resume at 5:45 p.m., but the horn sounded again before play could be resumed. Play was called off for the day at 6 p.m., with 64 players having completed their rounds and 63 still on the course.

The second round will resume at 7 a.m. Saturday, with the third round beginning at approximately 10:50 a.m. and the final group going off at approximately 12:50 p.m.

Of the 27 tournaments contested so far this season, this is the 14th to incur a weather delay.

Tournament officials moved tee times up this week because of afternoon thunderstorms in the forecast for each of the first two days.

Roberto Castro and Jordan Spieth hold the lead at 7 under, with both players already in the clubhouse. D.H. Lee and Andres Romero are two shots back.
