Brian Stuard leads suspended Zurich Classic after first-round 64

AVONDALE, La. -- Brian Stuard shot an 8-under 64 on Thursday to top the leaderboard in the suspended first round of the Zurich Classic.

The 33-year-old Stuard had only 21 putts in his bogey-free round at TPC Louisiana. He finished his final hole after a rain delay of nearly five hours. He is winless on the PGA Tour.

None of the afternoon starters was able to finish before darkness suspended play.

Retief Goosen was second after a 65. The 47-year-old South African is a two-time U.S. Open champion.

Top-ranked Jason Day bogeyed his final two holes for a 69. The Australian is the first No. 1 player to play in the event since David Duval in 1999.
