Mother Nature brought the PGA Tour’s regular season final to a standstill on Saturday, with play at the Wyndham Championships being postponed multiple times before eventually being suspended until Sunday morning.
Only 12 of the 86 players who cut through the third round finished Saturday before storms began to appear.
Weather has introduced fans to a golf version of the bell beater, as Brandon Wu hovers for the Eagle in par-4 11The tenth Moments before the trumpet explodes.
The eagle was followed by a Par-4 10 . birdThe tenth for Wu and move him to a share of the lead at 12 under with Sungjae Im.
Im also finished his day at 11The tenth, and although he didn’t punch his approach shot, he made his fourth flyby of the day and didn’t make a bogey on his third. Im looking to win for the third time on his tour and first since capturing the 2021 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
While there are only two players tied for the lead, there are another 20 players in five shots from Wu and Im.
Among that group sits Will Xalatores, who was one of 12 players to finish his third round. He shot a 4-under 66 in his first round without the long caddy Ryan Goble. The split between Zalatoris and Goble was announced before Wyndham’s third round, and Zalatoris spoke after his tour about the weight of that decision.
“We were guys who liked to have dinner together and hang out, and what was going on on the course started bleeding off the track, which isn’t what you want,” Zalatores said. “He’s a great friend, I love to death and I told him I have to do what’s best for me…Obviously, you can tell how difficult this decision was for me, especially its timing, but I think it was just getting a little bit of a hurt for both of us It is clearly painful.”
Full field scores of starring Wyndham
Also in the group of chasers is Ryan Moore, who sits twice in the back in the 10 under. Moore has struggled recently as he dealt with a back injury, but a T-2 finish or better this week will insinuate the former UNLV star into the FedExCup Playoffs.
Joohyung Kim finds himself a boss one-shot through 10 holes in his third round. Kim entered the season without a full Tour membership and therefore needs a win this week to seal his place in the Tour’s postseason, which begins Thursday at TPC Southwind.
The final round of the Wyndham Championship is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. ET on Sunday. Assuming there are no further weather delays, officials expect to be able to complete the tournament on Sunday.
