Georgia jumps into lead; third-round play suspended until Monday morning

Georgia 5-31 Georgia jumped ahead of Southern California before the third round was suspended.

BRADENTON, Fla. -- Play will resume at 7 a.m. ET Monday after inclement weather suspended the final six holes of the third-round Sunday evening.

Georgia jumped two spots and into the tournament lead with four holes to play as nine of the 30 teams remained on the course when the horn blew. The Bulldogs shot -4 through 14, jumping to +1 over three days, three strokes ahead of Southern California and six strokes better than Illinois for third place. Both teams were paired with Georgia to begin the day, and will finish with the Bulldogs in the morning.

Making a big move through 13 holes was Texas, which jumped eight spots up to sixth overall, starting on the back nine and shooting -6 with five holes left. The Longhorns’ six shots under par were topped only by UCLA. The Bruins put together the best round of the tournament so far, shooting 280 (-8) in their full round, jumping 11 spots from 19th overall to a tie for eighth.

UCLA had two players card a 68 (-4) as Jonathan Garrick and Preston Valder combined for two eagles and nine birdies to lead the Bruins into safety for the cut to 15 teams.

Things tightened up in the individual race as well. SMU’s Bryson DeChambeau carded a 72 (E) to hold on to a slim lead on the top spot. UAB’s Paul Dunne made a surge Sunday, posting five birdies en route to his second 69 (-3) in two days, moving to within a stroke of DeChambeau with a three-day total of 210 (-6). USF’s Claudio Correa, Illinois’ Thomas Detry and Georgia’s Zach Healy all sit three strokes below the lead at -4.

Following the finale of the third-round Monday morning, the field will be cut to 15 teams and nine individuals. The fourth round will begin 30-45 minutes after any potential team and/or individual playoffs, but no earlier than 10 a.m. Golf Channel will begin its live coverage at 12:30 p.m.
