Update 4:45 p.m. Play will restart at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow, with the final round scheduled for 12:30 p.m. times. Players will go off both Tee No. 1 and Tee No. 10 in an effort to get the tournament completed before darkness.

Update Saturday 3:25 p.m. The Masters has been suspended for the rest of Saturday as well, and play will resume at some point on Sunday. We’ll add details here when we have them.

The weather isn’t looking like fun for the rest of the weekend, as cold, wet, and gray is the forecast through tomorrow. But there aren’t any thunderstorms, so while it should be windy there might be enough of a break in the showers to get a gross round of golf completed.

Brooks Koepka at -13 holds a four-shot lead over his fellow competitor Jon Rahm as they both play the seventh hole.

Update 5:46 p.m. Play has been suspended for the rest of Friday at Augusta National.

Update 5:30 p.m. Just before the horn sounded, a tree fell near the 17th tee, and fortunately no one was injured. It should be cleared and out of the way once the tournament resumes.

Update 4:32 p.m. From the club itself...

Update 4:22 p.m. Due to thunderstorms with heavy winds and lightning, there is yet another delay at Augusta and the players have been called off the course. This one might be much longer than the 21-minute delay earlier today.

The players have been called off the course this time, and will head back to the clubhouse instead of staying on the course as they did for the previous delay.

Brooks Koepka is currently the leader at -12, with Jon Rahm at -9.

Update 3:28 p.m. The players back on the course, and the horn has sounded to resume play. But with more weather expected, this might not be the only delay in today’s play.

The Masters is in a weather delay due to lightning in the area of Augusta National Golf Club.

Brooks Koepka is the leader at -12, four shots clear of amateur Sam Bennett in second. The delay began about 3:07 p.m. ET, and all players were forced to stop until the band of storms clears the course.

There is no rain as of yet, so it won’t make the course any softer for the afternoon threesomes, and the wind is still nominal for now.
