CROMWELL, Conn. – Michael Bradley had a one-stroke lead when first-round play in the Travelers Championship was suspended for the day Thursday.

Bradley was 6 under with two holes left when play was stopped at 11:30 a.m. at TPC River Highlands.

Officials reopened the driving range late in the afternoon and hoped to resume play at 5:45 p.m., but another shower forced more delays and officials eventually decided not to restart play before 7 a.m. Friday.

Vijay Singh was in a group of seven players a shot back. Singh hit his drive into the woods on the par-4 15th hole just before the rain delay. He found the ball and was expected to take a drop when play resumes.

Former Masters champion Zach Johnson was in a group at 4 under.

Only two groups finished the round.
