Play stops at The Masters with 44 still on course

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Play has stopped for the day at the Masters, with Paul Casey in the lead and almost half the field unable to complete the first round because of a three-hour weather delay in the morning.
Casey shot a 7-under 65 and sat two strokes ahead of Webb Simpson, Xander Schauffele. Justin Thomas also was 5 under, but he only completed 10 holes. Defending champion Tiger Woods was among eight players at 68.
Play stopped after only about a half hour Thursday morning when lighting was spotted in the area. With the delay, 44 players will return Friday morning to complete the first 18 holes.
