Weather Halts Round Two at Dick’s Sporting Goods Open
Lightning, rain and thunderstorms forced a weather delay that turned into a suspension to end play for the day in the second round of the Dick's Sporting Goods Open at En Joie Golf Club. With lightning sighted and thunderstorms approaching play was halted shortly after 6 PM with five groups still on the course needing to complete second round play. After a delay of an hour tournament officials announced that play would not resume until Sunday morning.
The five remaining groups who need to complete their second round will resume play at 7:00 AM Sunday morning. Once they all finish round two then play will begin in the third round with the anticipated start time at 8:00 AM. All golfers will go off the first tee and the leaders are expected to start shortly after noon.
Tournament leader Doug Barron is one of the golfers yet to complete round two. Through 14 holes on Saturday Barron is ten-under par, one stroke ahead of David McKenzie at nine-under par through 14 holes, Marco Dawson at nine-under through 14 holes, Scott McCarron, nine-under through two complete rounds and Scott Parel who is nine-under through 14 holes.
Barron who just turned 50 (when players are eligible to compete on the Tour of Champions) is playing in just his second Champions event. He qualified to play in the Dick's Sporting Goods Open on Monday at the Links at Hiawatha.
