Thunderstorms and heavy rainfall rolled through central Florida yesterday to halt round one of PGA Tour Canada’s Florida Qualifying Tournament.

Just 23 players completed their rounds before play was suspended, with 10 groups left to tee off. Round one will be completed before round two commences today.

Before play was suspended, Peter Campbell of Baddeck, NS, battled through the soggy conditions to post a 1-under 71, the best score in the clubhouse of all the players that had finished 18 holes on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Reunion Resort.

The 31-year-old was the medalist at one of the NEC Series - PGA Tour Latinoamerica’s Qualifying Tournaments earlier this year, and is coming off a T2 finish at the Mundo Maya Open, a career-best on that tour.

The Cape Breton Islander made three cuts in nine starts on PGA Tour Canada in 2013. He had a season-best T21 finish at the Cape Breton Celtic Classic presented by PC Financial.
