Zurich Classic - R1

Stallings and Mullinax on top after torrential rain hits play

April 25-28
TPC Louisiana, Avondale, Louisiana
$7,300,000
Round 2, Round 3, Round 4


Scott Stallings and Trey Mullinax sit at the top of the leaderboard at the Zurich Classic after a rain-hit day in Louisiana meant just 13 teams finished the first round.

The American duo, who started on the back nine, shot a best-ball 11-under 61 after rattling off four straight birdies over their last four holes in the four-ball format.

Half of the 80 teams were unable to start their round after thunderstorms and up to two-and-a-half inches of rain battered the New Orleans course, causing a seven-hour and 33-minute delay.

Scotland’s Martin Laird and Nick Taylor, of Canada, were among those to finish their round, ending the day one shot back of Stallings and Mullinax.

Brian Gay and Rory Sabbatini, however, were closing in on the leaders after firing five birdies on the back nine to get to 10 under through 14 holes before darkness stopped play.

Joel Dahmen and Brandon Harkins finished tied for fourth at nine under alongside Brice Garnett and Chesson Hadley.

Play resume will resume at 7am on Friday (1pm BST).
