Rain stops play in Munich
Sunday 23 June 1996
Only two hours and 18 minutes play was possible before heavy, persistent rain forced the BMW International Open to be suspended for the day in Munich yesterday. Just 11 of the 33 pairings had begun the third round when the players were called off the course. The third round was due to be continued at 7.30 this morning. California's John Cook shot the best round of his life to storm into a three-stroke lead at the half-way mark of the St Jude Classic in Memphis, Tennessee. Cook's nine-under-par 62 in the second round fell just one stroke short of the Southwind TPC course record, and his 16-under 126 total equalled the lowest 36-hole score ever registered on the PGA Tour. "It was one of those days you dream about," Cook said. "That's as good as I can do it."
