Update: Play resumes at Wells Fargo Championship after three-hour delay

Second round play began at 9:50 a.m. Friday at the Wells Fargo Championship at Eagle Point Golf Club following a three-hour delay because of severe weather.

The golf course was hit with heavy thunderstorms throughout the morning, resulting in a tornado warning that expired at 5 a.m. followed by a tornado watch. Chances for storms decreased to 25-30 percent by 10 a.m. and were expected to dissipate by 2 p.m., according to The Weather Channel.

The tee time delay will result in play being suspended due to darkness early Friday evening and the conclusion of the second round being pushed to Saturday morning. The second round tee time for Coastal Carolina alumnus and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson has been moved to 4:06 p.m. Friday.
