DUPONT, Washington—While there is a bit of mystery about where all the players sit on the leaderboard at the PGA TOUR Canada Qualifying Tournament, through 11 holes, the final grouping of Blake Maum, Cameron John and Christian Muscarello are all tied at 8-under, with Taylor Funk playing a hole ahead joining them, also at 8-under.

Consistent rain all week has created some confusion, the seemingly constant precipitation has made conditions difficult and kept groundskeepers continually busy. Twenty-one players were unable to finish their third rounds. Officials have indicated they will resume third-round play Friday morning at 9:30, giving grounds crew time to prepare the course. Players will not regroup based on score at the conclusion of the third round and instead go back onto the course to start their final rounds. The last grouping of the final round is set for 12:40 p.m. PDT. A Saturday finish, with rain expected again Friday, is a possibility.  

Funk, John and Muscarello had all hit their tee shots on the par-3 12th late in the day, all three players’ balls on the green. Instead of putting, with darkness setting in, the trio elected to mark their balls and not putt in the quickly darkened sky. 

With rain all week plaguing the tournament and more rain arriving in the afternoon, crew members positioned themselves on Nos. 7, 8 and 10 to squeegee the greens after each group played the holes.

“It was pretty wet, and I’m pretty shocked we got through what we did,” said John.  

“We didn’t get as much done as we thought we would. Whether we got 11 done or 16 it really didn’t matter because we knew we weren’t going to finish,” said Muscarello after his round. “That doesn’t really change anything when we knew we were going to have to come out [Friday] and have another long day of golf.”
