The third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational was suspended due to inclement weather at 12:43 p.m. ET. Update: The third round is scheduled to resume at 4 p.m.

This was always in the cards and the reason the tee times were bumped up to split-tee threesomes. Scattered thunderstorms are in the Akron, Ohio area, and will be for much of the afternoon. The good news is, the leaders are already through 15 holes, so it's highly likely that 54 holes will be in the books for all players at day's end. Jim Fuyrk was 1-under-par for his round and 4-under through 53 holes when the horn blew.

Texas Longhorn product Jhonattan Vegas recorded a 3-and-1 victory over the European Ryder Cup star, Thomas Pieters, in round two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Playing in gusty conditions today, Vegas circled birdies at the par-4 first and par-4 fifth holes while Pieters scribbled five pars. The Belgian fought back with a birdie of his own at the par-3 seventh but then swallowed a bogey at the eight to give another hole to Vegas. With a 2-up lead at the turn, Vegas splashed home a 25'4" birdie at the 10th and Pieters found water at the 12th to give Vegas a 4-up lead. That lead proved to be too much for Pieters to overcome. Playing near his old University of Texas stomping grounds this week, Vegas is now 1-1-0 heading into his third round matchup against Scott Piercy. He will need Bubba Watson to lose to Thomas Pieters in order to have a chance of advancing to the Round of 16.

Trey Mullinax said his vows last weekend and returned to action today, styling a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-32=63 during the opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, tying the course record and grabbing the early lead.

The University of Alabama product arrived in a good place mentally this week, fresh off the wedding. He turned that into good play on the golf course today, pelting 15 greens in regulation despite finding just seven (of 14) fairways. His putter was dialed in as well, needing just 24 putts to make his way around Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. The PGA TOUR rookie is playing his 15th career PGA TOUR event this week, and this round eclipses his previous low round of 65 (R1, 2016 RSM). This also goes in a record books as a share of the Coco Beach G&CC course record, joining four other golfers who have shot 63 here, including James Driscoll twice.

Making his fourth appearance at Coco Beach Golf and Country Club, D.A. Points rocketed out of the gates at the Puerto Rico Open, firing a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 to grab the early lead on Thursday.

Taking advantage of prime scoring conditions this morning, Points split 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation. Surprisingly, he didn't take advantage of the easiest holes on the golf course today, circling just one birdie on the four-pack of par 5s. The clear highlight of the round came at the closing par-4 ninth where he holed out a 9-iron from 146 yards for an unconventional eagle to walk off the course in style. If he maintains possession of the clubhouse lead by day's end, it will be his third career first-round lead. The previous two he would go on to win (2013 Shell Houston Open and 2011 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am). This round fell one shy of the course record which is shared by four golfers, including James Driscoll twice.

World No. 60 Hideto Tanihara pulled off a major shock to put Jordan Spieth’s title bid tight behind the 8-ball after his 4-and-2 defeat in round one of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club.

The match started in style when both players smoothed birdie-3 at the opening hole, Spieth from 12’3", Tanihara from 4’7". They split seven pars in the next eight holes, before Tanihara, who had claimed the 7th with a 16’5" birdie, completed a kick-in par breaker at 10 and then gained the 12th with a par-5 after the American found water with his approach. Now 3-up Tanihara discovered the drink himself on 14, only for Spieth to hand a hole back when flubbing his chip at 15 and failing to rescue par from 20’5". When Spieth needed five swipes, all from off the fairway, to reach the par-5 16th the game was up. The unheralded Tanihara (best of T32 in three WGC appearances going back to 2007) will face Ryan Moore in the second series of matches, whilst Spieth faces a second Japanese challenge in the form of Yuta Ikeda.

In the unofficial Battle-of-the-Last-Two-Irish-Open-Champions Soren Kjeldsen defied an horrendous tournament record to sensationally overturn Rory McIlroy 2-and-1 in round one of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin CC.

If it was David versus Goliath on paper, it was never that way in reality as Kjeldsen (0-4-1 before today) refused to wilt, even when McIlroy threw his best shots at him. The Dane’s wedge strength was key: he made birdies from 129-yards at 1, 76-yards at 5 and 94-yards at 10; all for birdie, all for wins, all within 10’0". McIlroy ticked two front nine reds, but was 2-down with 8 to play. His reaction was world class: reducing the par-3 11th to a 199-yard 8-iron and 5’10" birdie putt, making birdie-4 at the next to pull all square and driving just shy of the short par-4 13th to go 1-up. Yet Kjeldsen responded in kind, lasering a 173-yard approach at 14 to 8’6" and taking it to draw level. At the next he made birdie-4 when McIlroy failed and went in for the kill on 17, draining a 3’1" par breaker on the par-3. McIlroy will seek to rescue the week against Gary Woodland in the second wave of matches, Kjeldsen takes on Emiliano Grillo.

Charl Schwartzel made quick work of Byeong Hun An on day one of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, winning 6-and-5 to secure the first point out of Group 12.

The South African joins his fellow countryman, Branden Grace, as the first two match winners of this week's event. Despite the final score, it wasn't an open-and-shut case. Byeong Hun An overcame an early deficit when he recorded a par at the second hole to regain ALL SQUARE status. An would take the lead just two holes later when he tapped in a 2'5" par. Schwartzel took over the match from there, winning seven of the next nine holes to close out the match. He circled just three birdies over that stretch, but An failed to fight back. Up next for Schwartzel is a Friday match against the Dutchman, Joost Luiten.

World No. 12 Patrick Reed looks to defend his reputation as a strong match play competitor as he readies for this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The American Ryder Cup hero arrives with an impressive singles record under his belt, 10-5-1 in his career. That includes a 3-1-0 record at Austin Country Club last year, going undefeated in group play before losing in the Round of 16 to Dustin Johnson. This time around his opening Round Robin group includes Brooks Koepka, Kevin Kisner, and Jason Dufner. Most years Brooks Koepka would be a very tough opponent in this format, but Koepka arrives a bit out of form. That cements Reed's spot as the favorite to advance out of the group stage this week in Austin, Texas.

Tony Finau took home the hardware at the 2016 Puerto Rico Open but will not be making a repeat appearance as he currently finds himself as the first alternate for the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The big hitter took care of business in his first trip to Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. He won the event with a four-day tally of 12-under 276 and outlasted Steve Marino in a playoff. Most of the heavy lifting was done on the par 5s as Finau finished the week 7-under on those lengthy holes, circling eight birdies to offset a lone bogey. The 27-year-old chose to skip the flight to Puerto Rico this year as he currently waits in Austin, Texas, as the first alternate. There is no guarantee he will earn a spot in the field, but it's worth a shot to find out, especially for Finau who has never played in a WGC event.

World No. 3 Jason Day hoisted the Walter Hagen Cup after winning seven matches at the 2016 WGC-Dell Match Play, and returns this week for another crack at Austin Country Club.

Arriving fresh off a win at the 2016 Arnold Palmer Invitational, Day kept his foot on the gas to win seven straight Match Play matches in last year's edition. That included the finale where he ousted Louis Oosthuizen 5-and-4, the largest margin of victory in a championship match since 2008 when Tiger Woods won 8-and-7 over Stewart Cink. Day is no stranger to success at this event, as he also won the 2014 edition at Dove Mountain and finished third the year before that. Instead of being the golfer that arrives off an API win, this year he will have to beat that golfer (Marc Leishman) in addition to Lee Westwood and Pat Perez who round out Group 3. While Day doesn't enter with the same form as last year, his career head-to-head record of 22-8-0 secures his spot as one of the favorites this week in Austin, Texas.

2015 champion Rory McIlroy is hoping for a Woodland repeat in the first round of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, hosted this week by the Austin Country Club.

The Northern Irishman has a career singles winning percentage of 67%, a figure only three men in the field can better. It’s a number which has been mostly built on success in this event, constructing a tournament record of 22-8-1, including a win in 2015, second in 2012 and fourth 12 months ago. His injury disrupted season has seen him log finishes of T2-T7-T4 with plenty of par breakers, but many par busters too (less damaging this week). He’ll kick off the week in Group 2, facing Gary Woodland, who he defeated 4&2 in the 2015 final ("I hope that’s still in his mind," McIlroy joked after the draw), Soren Kjeldsen and Emiliano Grillo. It seems a nice draw, but for what it’s worth (anything?), he arrives on a run of three straight singles defeats (last year’s semi-final and consolation match, then being felled by Patrick Reed in the Ryder Cup). Prior to that stretch he had gone 13 matches without defeat (12-0-1).

As he makes a 15th appearance in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, Sergio Garcia will be hoping to buck the trend of his past efforts; he’ll tee it up at Austin Country Club on Wednesday.

The Spaniard has a career singles record of 30-25-3 across all competitions, but as with his Ryder Cup singles record (2-4-1), his WGC performances have flattered to deceive. In all of his 14 starts he has only once played four matches, when reaching the semi final in 2010. Consequently his log reads an uninspiring 18-16. He may have some recent fond memories of the match play format however – the last time he was seen playing it was when he halved his match against Phil Mickelson in the Ryder Cup, a match widely perceived one of the greatest match-ups in the tournament’s history (they made 19 birdies between them and hit a better-ball score of 18-under 58; Garcia shot 63 with his own ball). A strong winner of the Dubai Desert Classic, he was T14 in the Honda Classic and then T12 in the Mexico Chammpionship. To progress to the knockout stages he must first negotiate compatriot Jon Rahm, Kevin Chappell and Shane Lowry in Group 7.
