Sam Burns holds on to lead as play suspended

Sam Burns started his third round at The Genesis Invitational with a five-shot lead and played even par over the first seven holes but four bogeys and a single birdie over the next five saw his lead shrink down to two shots by the time play was suspended due to darkness.


High winds caused play to be suspended several times as gusts reached 35mph and caused problems for the players as well as safety issues causing a four hour delay.



“We started the day in pretty pleasant conditions, and we were expecting to have winds of 10, 15 miles an hour during the morning hours with some gusting winds to pick up later in the day, but obviously these gusts picked up a lot earlier than we expected,” said Rules Official Steve Rintou.

“Ultimately, we had some balls move around on the putting greens, which we were able to deal with under the rules, however safety for all out there on the golf course was our primary reason for shutting things down. We had a piece of communications equipment fall down very close to some players on the 14th tee, which really makes us as a committee step back and say maybe we need to go ahead and suspend now before it gets more dangerous out there.”

The last time high winds suspended play on the PGA Tour was at the St Andrews Open Championship in 2015.


“It’s a hard course with no wind,” said Burns, who lies at 10-under through 13 holes.

World Number 1 Dustin Johnson is three shots back in a tie for third through 13 holes after firing three birdies and three bogeys.
