LA JOLLA, Calif. -- What has seemed inevitable for most of the afternoon finally happened.
The third round of the Farmers Insurance Open was officially suspended at 7 p.m. ET. Play will resume at 10 a.m. ET on Sunday and continue as long as there is daylight.
Mark Russell, the vice president of rules, competition and administration for the PGA TOUR, said he expects to have to complete between nine to 12 holes on Monday.
Only six players got to tee off on Saturday and only three completed a hole. The fog delay began at 10:20 a.m. ET and -- with the exception of five minutes -- ran until play was called.
A total of 87 players made the cut so normally there would be a secondary cut after the third round. For expediency's sake, though, there will be no cut and the players will not be repaired for the final round.
