Ben Crane, who leads the FedEx St. Jude Classic by four shots at 13 under, and the rest of the field, including Phil Mickelson (5 under), will now try and finish both the third and final rounds Sunday in Memphis.
Saturday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic began with an hour fog delay and ended with the fifth weather delay of the tournament. Ben Crane, the leader at 13 under, got just six holes into his third round before thunderstorms halted play shortly before 7 p.m. local time in Memphis.
Thunderstorms, heavy rain and flooding all did their part in suspending play Friday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Just 32 players, including six-shot leader Ben Crane, were able to finish their second rounds, meaning Saturday will be another long day of golf at TPC Southwind in Memphis.
Ben Crane's 7-under 63 gave him the clubhouse lead before play was halted for darkness Thursday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. But Phil Mickelson and others are looking to make a run at the lead Friday during what will be another long day of golf in Memphis.
As darkness set in Thursday evening in Memphis, Ben Crane rolled home a 27-foot birdie putt at the par-4 18th to card an opening-round, 7-under 63 and take the clubhouse lead at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
Defending champion Harris English and a list of others, including Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson, will try and get a victory at the FedEx St. Jude Classic before the U.S. Open begins next week.
