With a thunderstorm brewing nearby, the horn sounded at 3:35 pm local time with the afternoon half of the field at various stages of their rounds at Bellerive.

An electrical storm subsequently swept across the course, dumping torrential rain shortly after most of the sellout crowd had exited the premises.

The second round should be completed by late morning on Saturday, and the third round is scheduled to start about 30 minutes later.
