July 29, 2011

TOLEDO, Ohio -- Heavy rain and thunderstorms Friday morning have delayed the start of the second round of the 32nd U.S. Senior Open at Inverness Club.

The second round, scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m., will commence at 10:15 a.m. The final afternoon pairing, which was supposed to go off at 2:45 p.m., is now 5:15 p.m.

There is a chance of scattered thunderstorms Friday afternoon in northern Ohio, but the forecast for Saturday and Sunday is good.

Olin Browne shot a seven-under 64 Thursday to take a two-stroke lead over Michael Allen and Mark O'Meara.
