Play halted at Valhalla; Perry on No. 7, 4-under for tourney

LOUISVILLE — So far, Kenny Perry’s 54th birthday has been a washout.

The Franklin resident’s final round of the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club was suspended around noon CDT Sunday after a torrential downpour drenched the already rain-soaked course.

Perry was set to hit his approach shot on the par-5 seventh hole when play was called and the players were removed from the course. Play was scheduled to resume at 1:40 p.m. CDT.

Perry is wrapping up what he’s said will likely be his final PGA Tour major appearance. He has five pars so far today, as well as a brilliant birdie on the par-3 third.

Perry nearly holed his tee shot on No. 3 but settled for a tap-in birdie. He’s at 4 under for the tournament.

Rory McIlory leads the tournament at 13 under but has yet to tee off today. His tee time with playing partner Bernd Wiesberger has been pushed to 3:19 p.m. CDT, which will make it a close call for the leaders to finish before dark.
