SILVIS, Ill. (AP) - The second round of the John Deere Classic has been postponed due to heavy rain and is now scheduled for Saturday.
Scheduled to start at 7 a.m. on Friday, tournament officials were hoping to begin play at 4 p.m. after several delays. They called the round off entirely about 20 minutes before the first groups were scheduled to tee off.
By then, the sun was out and most of the clouds had disappeared. But the course was simply too wet, so officials moved the round back a day and scheduled 36 holes for Sunday.
Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen and Darron Stiles are tied for the lead after shooting 7-under 64 on Thursday.
