Weather postpones final round till Monday

The 2024 U.S. Senior Open was in a lengthy delay Sunday afternoon when the USGA announced the final round would be postponed till Monday due to a “dangerous weather situation.”

Hiroyuki Fujita is the current leader at 16 under. He is up three shots on Richard Bland and four on Richard Green. Steve Stricker is solo fourth at 10 under. Those are the only four golfers double digits under par through 3 ½ rounds at Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhode Island.

Fujita, 55, has just two bogeys through 64 holes so far. Through the first 54 holes, he had only missed one fairway. During his final round Sunday, he broke the record for most consecutive fairways hit (32) at a U.S. Senior Open since 1997.

The third round tee times on Saturday were moved up in an attempt to avoid the weather but Mother Nature was not to be beat on Sunday. When play was suspended at 3:01 p.m. ET, the USGA reported that it was due to “a dangerous weather situation.”

NBC and Peacock will have live coverage starting at 8 a.m. ET on Monday.
