Play suspended at St Andrews


ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – Second-round play was suspended at 2:39 p.m. (GMT) at the Open Championship due to “unplayable conditions.”

Tiger Woods was on the first hole when the horn blew and Rory McIlroy, the overnight leader, was at 9 under, three strokes behind front-runner Louis Oosthuizen.

On Wednesday Royal &Ancient chief Peter Dawson was asked what conditions would force a play stoppage. “It's very measurable by whether the balls are moving about on the greens. If they're moving almost at all you stop play,” Dawson said.
