Play Suspended At The Masters Due To Poor Weather, Finau One-Over-Par Through Eight Holes
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Play has been suspended at The Masters after poor weather enters Augusta National. It appears that the storms within the area will move through reasonably quickly.
Finau was approaching the 9th green as the horn blew. He finds himself at one-over-par after making two bogeys and one birdie through eight holes of golf thus far.
His day began with a three-putt bogey on the first hole, his first three-putt of the tournament. He was unable to capitalize on the par 5 2nd hole despite going birdie, eagle on Thursday and Friday respectively, he found two bunkers and escaped with a par.
Weather Update: At 3:57 p.m. EDT, play was suspended due to inclement weather. #themasters

Then, Finau hit a monstrous drive on the par 4 3rd hole and found himself with just 27 yards to the pin. He snuck a wedge in tight and drained his birdie. His only birdie on the front nine so far today.
Unfortunately, the hardest hole on the golf course; the par 4 5th hole, gained another victim when Finau made bogey after missing the green fore right with his approach. He had a 5-foot par putt but was unable to capitalize after pulling the putt left.
It was a par fest the rest of the way before the horn blew.
Finau currently finds himself in a tie for 11th and four shots behind Justin Rose who leads the field at seven-under-par.
It remains unknown how long play will be suspended.
