Toronto’s Christian Westhorpe and Clark Klaasen of the U.S. shared the lead at 2-under par yesterday before play was called due to darkness at PGA Tour Canada’s Florida Qualifying Tournament.
Play is scheduled to resume today when 66 players begin their second rounds.
After Tuesday’s thunderstorms and rain delayed play, yesterday saw all but 23 players return to complete the first round.
The windy conditions that tested the competitors during each of the first two days resulted in just four players being under par for the tournament midway through the second round at the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Reunion Resort.
One shot behind Westhorpe and Klaasen are Cape Breton’s Peter Campbell, who completed his first round Tuesday and did not play at all yesterday, and American Colby Wilson. Both players shot 1-under 71 in the first round.
The top 18 players this week will earn exempt status on PGA Tour Canada for 2014, with the rest of the top 40 plus ties earning conditional status.
