Champions Event Extends to Monday


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Dana Quigley fired a 6-under 66 in the final round Sunday to move into a share of the lead at the Bayer Advantage Classic. He was joined atop the leaderboard by Gil Morgan at 11-under-par 133.
However, the duo will have to wait until Monday to see if a playoff will decide the winner of this event. For the third time this year, the Champions Tour will have a Monday finish (Live on TGC at 5 p.m. ET).
Bad weather has reeked havoc with the event all week. Saturday's play was completely washed out due to heavy rains and that forced officials to shorten the event to 36 holes. This event joins the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am as the two weather-shortened tournaments this year.
There were three weather delays during Sunday's action. The final one started at 5:55 p.m. ET. Just over an hour later at 7:00 p.m., play was called for the day. The round will resume Monday at 10:00 a.m.
Quigley, the tour's ironman, posted a bogey-free 66 that included three birdies on each nine at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate to move to the top of the leaderboard.
Morgan birdied four and five to get to minus-9. After a bogey at the seventh, he parred his next two holes. Morgan ran off three straight birdies from the 10th before parring out to close a round of 4-under 68.
Jim Thorpe (67), Jim Ahern (70) and Gary McCord (69) share third place at 8-under-par 136. They are joined there by Rodger Davis, Dan Pohl and Tom Watson, who have nine, 10 and 12 holes to play respectively.
Lonnie Nielsen, Senior PGA Championship winner Mike Reid and Dick Mast are all done their rounds and tied at minus-7. D.A. Weibring, who won the Bruno's Memorial Classic earlier this year, is at 7 under par through seven holes.
Allen Doyle, the 2004 champion, finished at 4-under-par 140.
