If Shane Lowry is to finally get his hands on the winners’ trophy at PGA National, he’s going to have to wait as heavy thunderstorms rolled through Palm Beach Florida, forcing several hours of play suspension and making a Sunday completion impossible.

Lowry started the day in a three-way tie for the lead with American Austin Eckroat and England’s David Skinns, and is one of 11 players who had yet to tee off when the hooter sounded, and at the time of writing, play has yet to resume. In a best case scenario, the final groupings may get a couple of holes in before darkness will halt play for the day.

South African Erik Van Rooyen was the hottest player on the course before play was suspended, birdieing seven of the opening nine and adding another on 10 to move to the top of the leaderboard, one clear of Lowry, Skinns and Eckroat.

Rory McIlroy has found himself stuck in neutral on day four, covering his eight holes in level par.

PGA Tour tournament organisers are sure to come under fire for failing to utilise a two-tee start, especially with the Seminole Member/Pro event scheduled for Monday and with many of the stars in action at PGA National.
