LOS ANGELES – Game suspended at Genesis Invitational at 1:18 p.m. ET due to high winds The last time game was suspended on the PGA Tour due to high winds was in the third round of the 2015 Open Championship

The final group, which included front runner Sam Burns, was on the first tee, preparing to begin the third round, when play was halted because golf balls were moving on most of the greens

Winds were blowing more than 15 mph and the Riviera Country Club, which is playing unusually firm and fast after weeks of dry weather in Los Angeles this year, was expected to blow harder
