Rain delay for Garcia Ryder bid
Monday 20 August 2012
Sergio Garcia's bid for the win that would seal his sixth Ryder Cup cap was delayed by heavy rain in Greensboro, North Carolina, last night.
The Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club will resume at 9am today – 2pm BST – with Garcia one shot ahead and 14 holes to go.
Play was suspended at 3.10pm local time and called off for the day at 5.45pm with 38 of the 75 players yet to finish.
Garcia, needing a top three finish to move back into a qualifying position for next month's match in Chicago, was one ahead overnight and moved to 15 under par with a tee shot to five feet on the short third.
The South African Tim Clark twice caught him with birdies at the second and fourth, but then ran up a bogey six at the long next to fall back alongside Americans Jason Dufner and Bud Cauley.
Garcia was just short of the green in two on the par five when officials brought the players off the course.
The Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts, also still in with a chance of automatic selection for Europe, moved from 17th into a tie for fourth by going to the turn in a three under 32, but a bogey at the par three 12th saw him slip back to joint ninth.
