GREENSBORO, N.C. — Sergio Garcia had the lead at 15 under through four holes Sunday when the final round in the Wyndham Championship was suspended for the day because of heavy rain.

Tim Clark, Jason Dufner and Bud Cauley were at 14 under through varying stages of their rounds, and 38 players — half the field — were still on the course when play was stopped.

After waiting roughly 2 hours, 20 minutes, officials decided to bring them back to Sedgefield Country Club at 9 a.m. Monday to crown a champion and figure out who qualifies for the playoffs and who doesn't. It will be the first Monday finish in Greensboro since 1983.

It's been four years since Garcia's last PGA Tour victory, and he'll have to wait another day to see if he can finish it off.
