A marine layer pushed back the start of the Farmers Insurance Open third round by three hours, with the first groups beginning their rounds at 10:20 a.m. PT. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 12:20 p.m.

There were six 30-minute delays this morning at Torrey Pines. Chez Reavie went off the first tee but didn't finish the hole before play was suspended yet again. Threesomes off split tees are scheduled, and the first group off the 10th tee completed one hole. The leaders are now set to begin their rounds on the first tee at 2:40 p.m. PT. Due to the series of delays, the third round will not conclude today, and with 87 golfers surviving the cut, officials will have to decide at some point whether to allow all 87 play 72 holes (thus forgoing the 54-hole/MDF since it's likely the golfers will not re-pair after the third round) or reduce the cut right now to the number nearest 60 so that the tournament still finishes on Sunday.

Overnight co-leader Søren Kjeldsen turned in a 4-under-par 32-35=67 for his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and owns a two-stroke lead over Maximillian Kieffer and fellow 36-hole co-leader Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

Kjeldsen was one of six atop the leaderboard at the midpoint. He opened with a birdie at the par-5 first and circled another five through 13 holes. He was maintaining the only blemish-free card until squaring a bogey at the par-4 17th. He then closed with a bogey-6 at 18 that yielded only two birdies among 68 golfers that came through today. The Dane celebrated his 40th birthday on May 17. He's a three-time winner on the European Tour but not since 2009. One of the perks for winning this week's test at Royal County Down Golf Club in Northern Ireland is a berth into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in early August. While Kjeldsen still has a long way to go to secure the tee time at Firestone, that he's in position to achieve it is a surprise. Despite improving form of late, he started the week slotted 303rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Rickie Fowler signed for a 5-over-par 35-41=76 following his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and sits at 5-over 218 through 54 holes.

Oh, what a difference two holes make. Fowler started the day just inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and opened today's stroll around Royal County Down with a bogey-6 at the first hole. He played his next 15 holes impeccably with a a birdie-2 at No. 7 and a chip-in for eagle at the par-4 16th. Now 2-under and lurking, the American lost his tee ball at the par-4 17th and clunked around until he penciled in an 8. Alas, he post the same number on the par-5 18th and compound matters. Links golf offers few opportunities to let off the gas. Today's cold and windy conditions didn't help. Fowler paid the price. Twice.

With a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, Maximilian Kieffer established the course record at Royal County Down Golf Club.

No one shows up on this famed piece of property and inquires about the course record, but the German doesn't need to now, anyway. The only thing is, it may not last long. Søren Kjeldsen is 6-under with two holes to play. Nevertheless, no one can take away what Kieffer accomplished today. He went 5-for-6 in scrambles with one bogey and countered with seven birdies. It's a remarkable turnaround from Friday's 76. Now 5-under 208, he's the 54-hole clubhouse leader in Newcastle, Northern Ireland. Incidentally, the previous mark of 66 was equaled by England's Tyrrell Hatton in the second round.

The restart of the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship has been pushed back three hours to 11:00 a.m. CT. UPDATE: Play resumed at 10:58 a.m.

With more rain overnight falling on an already saturated TPC Four Seasons, this delay is necessary. Flooding has been occurring throughout the Dallas Metroplex, so that they were even playing golf at all on Friday is a testament to the grounds crew. When play resumes, Roberto Castro will have one hole to complete. He'll be returning to the par-4 ninth. He's even on his round and 1-under for the tournament. The cut line is likely going to fall at 1-under 138, so he knows exactly what he needs to score. He needs the payday, too. The 29-year-old sits 208th in the FedExCup standings. Castro is one of 33 who were unable to finish the second round due to darkness. The start of play was delayed three hours in the morning.

Brian Gay underwent surgery on his left thumb on Tuesday, May 19, and remains out indefinitely.

Gay wife's, Kimberly, shared a post-op photo on Twitter, which you can see at the link below. Three days later, she tweeted that it's his second thumb surgery in eight months. It was in early October that Brian's caddie, Kip Henley, conveyed on Twitter that his boss was out with a thumb injury. Until Kimberley alerted her followers about the second surgery, we didn't know that Brian even had one. He hasn't played this season and figures not to return for months. So, expect him to open 2015-16 with a Major Medical Extension in the vicinity of 26 starts. The four-time PGA TOUR winner is 43 years of age.

Jimmy Walker followed his opening 64 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 3-under-par 34-32=66 in today's second round, reaching the midpoint in 9-under 130 and share of the 36-hole lead.

Walker has to be happy to have snuck in his entire round today. Play was suspended at the beginning of the day due to unplayable conditions all over TPC Four Seasons due to four-and-a-half inches of overnight rain. Walker opened with six pars before lassoing his first of five birdies at the par-5 seventh hole. He covered bogey-5s at Nos. 12 and 15 with birdies at 11, 13, 14 and 16. His 12 birdies overall ranks second in the field to co-leader Steven Bowditch's 15. Walker will enter the weekend in pursuit of his third title of the season. You'll recall that he won thrice last season after failing to find paydirt in his first 187 starts on the PGA TOUR.

Overnight leader Steven Bowditch chased his opening 62 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 1-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round to post 9-under 130, good for a share of the 36-hole lead.

We're only two days into the tournament, but we've already seen most of the spectrum that the Aussie possesses. He putted the light out on Thursday, as he's often prone to do, and the added seven birdies today, but also incurred six bogeys. So, he easily leads the field with 15 birdies but drifts into a tie for the lead at the halfway point.
May 29 - 9:47 PM

Scott Piercy withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship during his second round.

Piercy completed 11 holes in 3-over-par and was 5-over through 29 when he walked off TPC Four Seasons. If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you. This is his fourth mid-tournament WD in 181 PGA TOUR starts. It's the fourth time in his last five starts this season that he's failed to cash, but the 36-year-old arrived ranked 41st in the FedExCup standings, so he can absorb a slump. For the time being, he's scheduled to tee it up at next week's Memorial.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello joined the lead with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open on Friday and achieved something no other player has managed so far.

A total of 306 rounds have been played over the first two days in often brutal conditions at Royal County Down but RCB owns the only-bogey free lap after hitting 15 greens in regulation and going 3-for-3 in scrambling. Outstanding. The Spaniard grafted for 14 pars and a birdie at the third over his first 15 holes and then produced a mini spurt late on with par breakers at 16 and 18 to make it a six-way tie for the lead at 3-under 138 alongside Tyrrell Hatton, Søren Kjeldsen, Chris Wood, Richie Ramsay and Bernd Wiesberger.
May 29 - 6:00 PM

Ángel Cabrera withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship prior to his second round due to a back injury.

The Argentine was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 3:40 p.m. CT. He opened with 4-over-par 37-37=74 with three birdies and seven bogeys. This is his seventh mid-tournament WD in 238 PGA TOUR starts; it's his second in his last four. His last occurred at THE PLAYERS, also because of a back injury. Cabrera started the week slotted 152nd in the FedExCup standings, but he's fully exempt through next season.
May 29 - 5:14 PM

Gary Woodland had himself a day at TPC Four Seasons, signing for a 6-under-par 31-32=63 following his second round.

Woodland needed something special today to get to the weekend. He opened with a 2-over 72 that included one bogey, one double and one triple. He found it early and often on Friday. Starting on the par-4 10th, Woodland would snipe his first of five birdies on the par-4 11th. But the highlight occurred on the modified par-3 14th where he holed out from the tee box (in the fairway) from 104 yards. It's his first ace in 463 rounds on the PGA TOUR. (You can view the shot for yourself at the link below.) He reached the midpoint in 4-under 135 and sits four swings off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
