The Senior PGA Championship has been reduced to a 54-hole even due to a series of delays thanks to the weather this week in South Florida. PGA of America officials reduced the championship to 54 holes following Sunday's delay, marking the first time the event has been shortened since its expansion to 72 holes in 1958. The final round will take place today, weather permitting.

Dana Quigley made the biggest move of the day firing an incredible ten birdies on Sunday during his second round to move within one stroke of Doug Tewell. But his ealrie quadruple bogey offset some of the brilliance. But he is still tha man Tewell should look for in the final round.

Both Quigley and Tewell had parred their first hole of the third round when rain halted play for the seventh time in four days. Tewell was 10 under par while Quigley stood 9 under.

Tom Kite and Larry Nelson are 7 under while Gibby Gilbert is 6 under.
