In anticipation of the bad weather, players were able to lift, clean and place this morning at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, and many took advantage.

Justin Leonard and Retief Goosen were on their last holes of the day when play was called, and both are leading at 8 under par, along with Ryo Ishikawa, who has four holes left. Ishikawa's round was highlighted by an ace at the 210-yard, par-3 4th.

Rickie Fowler has two holes left and sits at 3 under par.
