Rain delays Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic until Saturday

SAUCIER, Miss. – The opening round of the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic has been moved to Saturday because of heavy rain in south Mississippi at Fallen Oak.

The players will tee off at 7 a.m. Central on Saturday with the second round scheduled to begin about 12:30 p.m.

The field includes 26 of the top 30 in the current Charles Schwab Cup money list. David Frost, who won last year’s tournament at Fallen Oak, is also playing this weekend.

Rod Spittle is the lone Canadian in the field.
