SAVANNAH, Ga. – The final stage of Korn Ferry Tour Q-School is extending into at least another day.

Inclement weather scrapped third-round play on Saturday at The Landings Club, forcing officials to implement a Monday finish. The third round will now begin at 8 a.m. ET Sunday on both the Marshwood and Magnolia courses while the final round will start at the same time Monday morning.

The last tee times on those days will be 10:12 a.m.

“I’ve never been so pumped to get a text regarding golf in my life,” said Blayne Barber, who was likely not alone in rejoicing that no golf would be played Saturday in 40-degree temperatures, 15-20 mph winds and heavy rain.

Officials deemed conditions unplayable before a tee ball was even struck Saturday. By 9 a.m., the had called play for the day. The tour’s meteorologist said 1 1/2 inches of rain had fallen between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. Saturday.

Korn Ferry Tour bylaws allow the competition to extend further if unplayable conditions caused by this cold front persist.
