The third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational will begin at 11:00 a.m. ET.

Overnight thunderstorms are expected to extend into the daylight morning hours at Firestone on Saturday. As a result, the 73-man field will be grouped in threesomes and go off split tees. Bubba Watson will be among one of the late starters off the first tee. After today's 1-under-par 35-34=69, he's 4-under 136 at the midpoint, nine strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Shortly after the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was suspended due to inclement weather at 4:30 p.m. CT, play was called for the day. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday.

They were able to play nine-and-a-half hours today before this delay. The entire late-early draw has 36 holes in the books, but all in the other half were stranded when the horn sounded. That group includes Nicholas Thompson, who went out in the first threesome off the first tee at noon. He's bogey-free 4-under-par on the day and 4-under for the tournament, but just inside the cut line at T67. When play resumes, Nitro will be standing over a look at birdie from 42'3" on the green at the par-5 18th hole.

Bernd Wiesberger reached the midpoint of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in bogey-free, 7-under-par 69-68=137 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

In the field on a foreign exemption, the Austrian has capitalized. He's split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation both rounds. After finding three birdies on Thursday, he rolled in four today, including respective conversions from 33'8" and 11'6" at the 17th and ninth holes. His appearance at TPC Louisiana could have been defined only as a tune-up for next week's Match Play and THE PLAYERS the week following, but he's making the most of it. His best finish in 12 previous starts on the PGA TOUR is a T15 at the 2014 PGA Championship.

Hudson Swafford added a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post bogey-free, 11-under 133, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Swafford created 15 opportunities to score again today, but instead of authoring a highlight-reel eagle, he calmly poured in six conventional birdies, three on each nine. What's more, the only par breaker of any length measured 13'1" at the par-4 16th hole, the antepenultimate of his round. Adding further perspective to his balanced attacked, when he walked off, he ranked outside the top 10 in both strokes-gained splits. It remains to be seen if today's afternoon wave can challenge, but the wind is up a bit as inclement weather from the west encroaches. There is a Tornado Watch for most of southwestern Louisiana through this evening, but it's several parishes from New Orleans.

Francesco Molinari alerted his followers on Twitter today that he's going to compete in next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

The commitment deadline for the event is later today. When Tim Clark withdrew earlier this week and Molinari didn't soon follow with news of his own that he wouldn't replace the South African as an alternate, you had a feeling that the Italian would figure out a way to green-light his appearance at TPC Harding Park next week. "Good news, the wrist is better and with the doctors' ok I'm leaving Sunday for San Francisco!," Molinari tweeted. "MatchPlay here we come!" It was just a few days prior to Clark's WD that Molinari tweeted that he was out until mid-May with a wrist injury, but clearly he wasn't considering the possibility of sneaking into the field of 64. Remember, he needs to hit only one ball to collect FedExCup points and official earnings in the Match Play, but he's also guaranteed three matches with the new round-robin format, so we'll have to take him at his word that he's ready.

Seung-Yul Noh withdrew from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans during his second round with a back injury.

The defending champ struck his second shot at the par-5 18th to 96 yards from the hole, and then walked off. He opened the loop with birdies at 10 and 11, but bogeyed 16 and 17 to return to even on the day. He was 1-over through 26 holes. This is his second mid-tournament WD in 104 PGA TOUR starts.

Julien Quesne carded a 5-under-par 32-35=67 to take a one-shot advantage after 36 holes of the Volvo China Open.

The Frenchman leads Peter Uihlein and defending champion Alexander Levy by a single stroke after an excellent display at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club on Friday took him to 8-under 136 at the midpoint. The two-time European Tour winner split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. He also went 4-for-4 in scrambling. Quesne is clearly in a groove after a T4 in Shenzhen last week and was flawless on his opening nine with five pars and birdies at 2, 4, 7 and 9. He added another pair of par breakers at 13 and 14 before swallowing his only bogey of the day at 17. "I played much better today, so that was the main reason for my good score," said Quesne. "I felt very comfortable and hardly missed any shots, so it was a very good day all round. My performance last week definitely helps build the confidence, so I felt good at the start of the week and I’m still feeling good now, but there’s a long way to go."

Greg Owen birdied half of TPC Louisiana en route to a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in today's opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

His nine birdies leads the field of 156. Three of them disappeared on the set of four par 5s, including a conversion from just outside 10 feet at No. 7 and a walk-off five-yarder from the fringe at 18. His longest par breaker measured 26'5" at the par-4 15th. This is Owen's lowest aggregate in 27 rounds this season, heady stuff given he hit only 12 greens in regulation today. He arrived in town just 3-for-9 on the season and 181st in the FedExCup standings. The Brit hasn't had a top 20 on the PGA TOUR since a T12 at the RBC Canadian Open in July of 2013, so he's probably already feeling the butterflies given what's at stake right now. Owen signed his card slotted two strokes back of the overnight co-leaders.

Hudson Swafford recorded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Swafford pounced on the par 5s at TPC Louisiana today, going 4-under on the quartet with an eagle and two birdies. The eagle was a gift. After his second at No. 18 landed in the rough left of the fairway and 112 yards from the target, he spun his third back into the cup. (You can view the shot at the link below.) His only other notable conversion traveled 13 feet for par at the par-4 15th. Swafford landed 15 greens in regulation on the round and came to a stop just three swings adrift of the overnight co-leaders.

Sean O'Hair hung up a 7-under-par 30-35=65 for his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, one stroke off the pace of the overnight co-leaders.

O'Hair came out with guns firing at TPC Louisiana today. After finding the fairway at the par-4 first hole, he promptly jarred his approach for eagle from 123 yards. He chased with a birdie-4 at No. 2 and a par-3 at the third. At the par-4 fourth, his approach came to rest in the rough right of the green. No problem as he converted the tricky shot for birdie from 17 yards out. Another par-birdie run followed before O'Hair rolled in a 14-footer for yet another birdie at the par-5 seventh to get to 6-under. He birdied the par-5 11th before finally dropping his only shot of the day with a bogey at the par-4 12th. The 32-year-old later walked off with birdie from 11'11" at the par-5 18th. Overall, he hit 14 greens in regulation and ranked second at last check in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 4.862.

Brendon de Jonge earned a share of the overnight lead at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round.

This was vintage. After getting back to work following a 78-minute weather delay, de Jonge missed only three greens in regulation and connected for eight birdies, including rolls from 26'5", 18'11" and 11'10" at Nos. 4, 5 and 6, respectively. Despite the score, he played the quartet of par 5s in just 1-under. It's always a challenge to follow a low number with another, but Friday's wind forecast at least favors the potential. Breezes aren't expected to freshen until midday on Friday. de Jonge is scheduled to go off the first tee at 7:20 a.m. CT.
Apr 23 - 7:26 PM

With an 8-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Boo Weekley owns outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Going low at TPC Louisiana isn't new to the big fella, but this is his lowest round of 21 in competition. It's his lowest aggregate anywhere since a final-round at Copperhead in the 2013 Valspar Championship. Weekley landed 14 greens in regulation today and covered a lone bogey at the par-3 ninth hole with an eagle and seven birdies. The eagle disappeared from 12'10" at the par-5 second, but his longest conversion of the round measured 15'10" at the par-4 eighth. He entered the tournament in a slump, having cashed only once in his last four starts, and that but a T75 at Harbour Town last week.
