GREENVILLE, S.C. – After lightning and heavy rains delayed the day’s start more than two hours, darkness forced the suspension of the second round of the Furman Intercollegiate with South Carolina still on course. The nine teams who did not get to complete round two will do so at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday prior to the start of the third round. With three players through 15 holes and two other through nine, the Gamecocks are even for the round to stand one stroke behind tournament leader Chattanooga, which completed its round on Saturday, and seven stroke ahead of Clemson, which has three players to finish on Sunday.

For the Gamecocks, sophomore Patrick Rada continues to lead the team as he is even through nine holes, carded two birdies and a pair of bogeys after staring on the 10th tee. Sophomore George Bryan IV got through 15 holes before darkness set in and was having a solid day on the course with six birdies to sit at one under with three holes left to play.

Senior Mark Anderson is on pace with Bryan through 15 holes, carding four birdies among three bogeys as he came off the course at one under. Junior Patrick Cunning is at two over through 15 holes as he made up ground in six holes after making the turn at three over. Like Rada, junior Allen Koon is even through nine holes.

Chattanooga shot 290 on Saturday to maintain a tenuous lead over the Gamecocks, who were within three strokes of the Mocs heading into Saturday’s round. First-round leader Jonathan Hodge of Chattanooga added a 73 (+1) Saturday to his first-round 69. After the second-round teams return to the course at 7:45 Sunday, six of the teams who finished their rounds today will tee off at 8:30 a.m. The remaining teams will start the third round at 11:45 a.m.
