Monday Finish For PGA Tour

PGA Tour golf fans, and in particular, Brad Fritsch fans, will need to wait another day to see how the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational plays out.

Seriously dangerous weather descended upon the Bay Hill Lodge & Golf Club on Sunday, cancelling play after the lead group had only played two holes of their final round.

Ottawa native Brad Fritsch was on his 6th hole of the day.  Unfortunately he was 3 over par for the round with the number about to go higher.  He was putting for double bogey on the 6th green when play was suspended at 2:03 p.m.

Heavy rain, wind, and a Tornado warning sent players, fans, and media scurrying.  Power was knocked out and the television broadcast, even with the help of a back-up power generator, still struggled to get on air.

Play will resume Monday at 10 a.m. with good weather expected.

Tiger Woods maintains a three shot lead at -12.  Chasing him at -9 is a foursome of players including Keegan Bradley, John Huh, Rickie Fowler, and Ken Duke.

Canadians David Hearn (73) and Graham DeLaet (73) had each completed their rounds before play was suspended.  They currently share 48th and 52nd place, respectively.

Mike Weir, although he made the 36 hole cut, withdrew with a suspected rib injury after playing 11 holes Saturday. He returned to his home in Utah to seek further medical attention.

Each of the four Canadians is in the field for the Shell Houston Open that will start Thursday.  There is not official word on whether Weir will withdraw due to his injury.
