OAKVILLE -- Play resumed at the 100th Canadian Open shortly after 4 p.m. following a rain delay of more than seven hours.

There were 52 players on the course when play was suspended at 8:38 a.m. after more than an hour of torrential rains. The rain continued through the morning hours, subsiding at about noon.

The grounds crew then went to work to drain and condition bunkers while waiting for the low spots on the fairways and greens to drain before play could continue.

American John Merrick was leading the tournament at two-under par after six holes when play was suspended. Six others, including John Daly and former Canadian Open champ Billy Andrade were at one-under-par.

Canadian Mike Weir was among a large group of players at even-par.
