HUTCHINSON, Kan — The third round of a golf tournament is often referred to as “moving day.”

For Stanford and Cardinal players Cameron Wilson and Patrick Rodgers, they did not need to move Sunday to keep their leads in the NCAA tournament.

Stanford did not play a hole Sunday at Prairie Dunes. The rainy weather that threw the tournament off track on the first day continued to wreak havoc, resulting in a tournament format gone haywire.

The fourth round originally scheduled for Monday was canceled, leaving the individual competition and team qualifying for match play at 54 holes.

The bottom 15 teams started their third round Sunday night only to be stopped by lightning again after seven to nine holes. Their rounds are scheduled to be completed Monday morning.

The top 15 teams in the standings are scheduled to play their third rounds Monday.

Wilson (6 under) and Rodgers (5 under) will enter Monday’s play in the lead individually. In the team competition, Stanford (12 under) leads Alabama (8 under) and Oklahoma State (4 under).

Georgia Tech didn’t hit a shot either, but moved up into fifth place at 1-under. Harrison High School standout Ollie Schniederjans sits at 4-under par in a tie for third place, and Seth Reeves is at 2-under in the individual tournament.

The other three Georgia teams were on the course when play was called.

Kennesaw State was putting together a solid round as the Owls were 1-under par through six holes and in 26th place.

Highlighted by a chip-in eagle on the par-5, 7th hole, Teremoana Beaucousin is 2-under on his round and tied for 27th at even par for the tournament.

Georgia is 2-under par for its third round and has moved up to 16th place at 11-over. Joey Garber was pacing the Bulldogs at 3-over par and is in a tie for 62nd.

Georgia State’s Davin White had pulled even with Wilson at 6 under through 17 holes of his second round.

But a double bogey dropped him to 4 under and he went 5 over in the seven holes before play was ended for the day, dropping him to a tie for 41st.

The Panthers finished Sunday in 21st place at 15-over.
