Houston Open R2

Malnati leading as play suspended

October 10-13
GC of Houston, Humble, Texas
$7,500,000
Round 1, Round 3, Round 4


Peter Malnati carded a bogey-free seven-under 65 to lead by one shot at the Houston Open during a second round suspended due to darkness.

The American finished at 10 under overall and ahead of Talor Gooch, 27, who has five holes left in his second round.

The 32-year-old Malnati stole the lead from his compatriot, who the previous day had equalled the lowest round of his career with an eight-under 64.


Malnati had to battle windy conditions from mid-morning following a two-hour rain delay.

The Indiana native, who was not sure if he would even compete in Texas as his wife is due to give birth to their first child in a fortnight, is chasing his second PGA Tour victory after winning at Sanderson Farms four years ago.
