Ryder Cup poised for Monday finish after start delayed

The Ryder Cup appears set for a first Monday finish after the start of the third day’s play was delayed on Sunday when torrential rain left the Celtic Manor course waterlogged.

Organisers said a further announcement would be made at 11am local time (10am GMT) and that play would not resume until noon at the earliest.

Spectators were told to stay at home and await further information before travelling to the Twenty Ten course.

The US holders led 6-4 overall but trailed in all six matches (two foursomes and four fourballs) when fading light ended play on Saturday. – Reuters
