LOS ANGELES – The game was put on hold at the Genesis Invitational at 1:18 p.m. ET due to high winds. The last time the game was suspended on the PGA Tour due to high winds was during the third round of the 2015 Open Championship.
The last group, including favorite Sam Burns, was off the first tee, preparing to start the third round when play was cut short because the golf balls were moving on most greens.
The winds were gusting to over 15 mph and are expected to blow harder over the Riviera Country Club, which is playing unusually firm and fast this year after weeks of dry weather in Los Angeles.
