RSS

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Saturday's second round of the Bayer Advantage Classic was postponed until Sunday due to inclement weather.
 
For the second straight year, the tournament has been reduced to 36 holes. Play will resume Sunday at 8:40 a.m. ET. Heavy thunderstorms Saturday rendered the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate unplayable.
 
R.W. Eaks and Gil Morgan share the lead after they each shot rounds of 7-under-par 65 on Friday. Jim Ahern is one shot behind the leaders at minus-6.
 
Dana Quigley, the 2000 champion bogeyed the 18th hole to slide to minus-5 and a tie for fourth. He was joined there by Tom Watson, Rodger Davis, Dick Mast, Gary McCord, Mark McNulty, Lonnie Nielsen, Dan Pohl and two-time champion Jim Colbert.
 
The first round was completed on Friday despite a weather delay prior to the round and a one-hour, 24-minute delay during the round.
 
There has been rough weather in the area all week. On Wednesday, there were straight-line winds of about 60 miles per hour that destroyed the media tent.
 
Allen Doyle, the defending champion, is tied for 37th at 1-under-par 71.
