Play At Senior PGA Championship Set To Resume

(LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 30th, 2004, 11:15 a.m.) -- Third round play in the 65th Senior PGA Championship will resume today at 12 Noon.

Play was suspended at Louisville's Valhalla Golf Club just after the players took to the course when a line of thunderstorms moved into the area.

Hale Irwin led Canadian Dave Barr by a stroke Saturday when the third round of the Senior PGA Championship was suspended because of darkness.

Tom Watson, Gil Morgan, Jay Haas, John Harris and Wayne Levi were two strokes back when play was suspended.

According to a release from the PGA Rules Committee, at the completion of the third round, players will check and sign their scorecards and must then proceed directly to their fourth round starting tee.

The PGA says there will be no official starting times for fourth round play.

NBC's live coverage of the 65th Senior PGA will begin at 2 p.m. on WAVE 3.
