Weather delays RBC Heritage finish until Monday morning

Scheffler

With world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler leading by five shots, the final round of the RBC Heritage on Sunday was suspended because of darkness due to inclement weather and will resume on Monday at 8 a.m.

Play was delayed for more than 2 1/2 hours as inclement weather rolled in at Harbour Town in Hilton Head Island, S.C. Once it resumed at 7 p.m., play continued until for 45 minutes, until it grew too dark to continue.

Scheffler, who was through 15 holes, appears poised to secure his second straight win and fourth overall this year. He was at 20 under par, with four players at 15 under.

“I will just go home as quick as I can, get some rest,” said Scheffler, who has won three of his last four starts. “I’ll treat (Monday) like I’m playing 18 holes and do all my normal prep work and come out here ready to go for the restart.”

On Sunday, Scheffler chipped for an eagle on the par-5 second hole and birdied Nos. 5 and 13.

Scheffler, who won the Masters last week, in position for his 39th consecutive under-par round to begin the season. If he wins, Scheffler would become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2006 to win a major and then win on the PGA Tour the following week.

Wyndham Clark, who has finished second to Scheffler twice this year, is the clubhouse leader at 15-under. He also eagled No. 2 and sank five birdies on the front nine, but ran into trouble on No. 12 and double bogeyed. He also had bogeys on 13 and 15.

“It was really fun the first 11 holes, and then just hit such a bad chip out on 12,” Clark said. “Honestly, it was a great day. I was trying to get myself in the top 10 and have a good finish, and it was kind of fun for a little bit. Seemed like maybe we had a chance to do something crazy. All in all, a great day.”

J.T. Poston, Patrick Cantlay and Sahith Theegala are also 15-under. Poston and Cantlay are through 17 holes, while Theegala is in Scheffler’s group.
