Preferred lies due to wet weather

•Players were entitled to preferred lies during the final round of the weather-interrupted PGA Championship due to the wet conditions at Baltusrol Golf Club, officials said yesterday.

More than 1.5cm of rain fell overnight to further soak a course where rain and thunderstorms caused play to be suspended in the midst of the third round on Saturday at the year's final Major championship.

Players returned to the course early yesterday to complete their third rounds, with the final round using the same pairings from round three.

Players were allowed to lift, clean and place their golf balls under the ruling from the PGA.
