Update No. 17: 3:56 p.m. EDT

We are still in a weather delay here at Congressional. While the rain has been on and off, lightning and thunder have continued to keep play at a halt. No official restart time has been announced yet. PGA Tour officials originally expected the delay to only be an hour to an hour-and-a-half, but at this point, that's not likely. Severe weather is expected to hit the area around 7 p.m. local time, too.

Stewart Cink and Gary Woodland are back near the top of the leaderboard. Both players shot 2-under 69 today and are tied at 3 under for the tournament.

Ben Kohles is just teeing off, but he is already 2 under through 3 holes. It'll be interesting if he can keep this momentum going so close to his old stomp ground of the University of Virginia. Yesterday he said, "Not too far away from Charlottesville (Va.),” Kohles said. “It’s good to be back in this area.”

• • •

Update No. 5: 11:51 a.m. EDT

Update No. 3: 11:25 a.m. EDT

How featured groups are faring this morning:

Brandt Snedeker, Hunter Mahan and K.J. Choi: Snedeker is 2 over on the day and even for the tournament. Mahan looks to be on the wrong side of the cut-line at 5 over for the tournament. Choi is at 4 over. He is 5 over on the day through 13 holes.

The Aussie trio of Adam Scott, Jason Day and Marc Leishman: Scott is 1 under on the day, but is 1 over for the tournament. Day is heading the wrong way, and maybe the wrist has something to do with it. Day is 2 over for the tournament, which is looking like the cut (2 over) early on Friday. Leishman, who got off to a tough start yesterday, is 1 under on the day and 3 over for the tournament.

• • •

Update No. 2: 11:05 a.m. EDT

Bud Cauley finished his day with a 1-over 72, and a two-day total of 2-unver 140. Cauley, as of now, is five shots back of the leaders, Roberto Castro and Jordan Spieth. This will be Cauley's eighth cut made in 18 events this year on the PGA Tour.

Woods, not playing in own tourney, says he'll be 'good enough' for British

• Aussie love: Scott, Day headline predictions for AT&T National

Jim Furyk, Rickie Fowler, Billy Horschel and Brandt Snedeker are all in the field, but none register as favorites at Congressional. Adam Scott is receiving plenty of love from the panel, being the top-ranked golfer in the field and enjoying some recent success at the track. Fellow Aussie Jason Day is also a man to watch.
