Third round resumes at 11:54

The U.S. Open third round resumption was pushed back from 7:30 a.m. because of more rain being dumped on Bethpage Black.

But the grounds crew has gotten the coruse into playable shape and hopefully, this tournament will be completed some time before the end of July.

Seriously, this will be the first time regulation play in an Open championship has extended into Monday since 1983. The third round is scheduled to end around 5 p.m., then the USGA will re-pair for the fourth round and go off both tees again until play is halted.

Then the fourth round and an 18-hole playoff if necessary will be completed Monday - assuming heavy rain will hold off for the remainder of the tournament. That's a big assumption.
