Genesis Invitational 2021 Round Three - Burns Leads by Two as Play Suspended


PGA TOUR 2021 - Genesis Invitational at the Riviera - Round Three

From the Daily Wrap-up:

The wind stopped Sam Burns right when he was about to get started with a five-shot lead Saturday at The Genesis Invitational. Darkness stopped him right after two straight bogeys narrowed his lead to two.

Thus ended a wild afternoon at Riviera, where the wind was raging so strong that it blew Keegan Bradley's putt off the green at No. 10 and nearly blew Max Homa's shot into the hole at the par-5 first.

A four-hour delay didn't make Riviera any easier.

Burns, the 24-year-old from Louisiana, went 31 consecutive holes without a bogey and kept Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and everyone else at a distance. When the streak ended on No. 8, it was the start of three inevitable bogeys over six holes.

"It's a hard course with no wind," Burns said.

He was at 10-under par through 13 holes, two shots ahead of Matt Fitzpatrick, who had a most bizarre round by going 10 consecutive holes without a par -- six birdies, four bogeys.

Johnson, Homa and Wyndham Clark were at 7 under, with Patrick Cantlay another shot behind. The third round was set to be completed Sunday morning ahead of the final 18 holes.

Tiger Woods showed up right about the time play was halted. Woods is the tournament host who is not playing as he recovers from a fifth back surgery.    Read more here
