HUTCHINSON, Kan. -- Play was halted for a fifth time during the NCAA Golf Championship on Sunday evening after the Purdue men's golf team started play in the third round. The Boilermakers were able to play about eight holes before a nasty thunderstorm that may have produced a funnel cloud moved west of Prairie Dunes Country Club, suspending play at 6:44 p.m. (CT).

As it stands now, the Boilermakers are 10-over par in the third round and currently in 25th place for the tournament with a 25-over par score.

Freshman Philippe Schweizer continues to lead the Boilermakers, currently sitting at 1-over par through seven holes during third-round play. Schweizer birdied the par-5 17th hole to get to even-par for his championship, but suffered back-to-back bogeys on hole Nos. 1 and 2 to fall to 1-over for his round and 2-over par for the Championship with 11 holes left to play. He is currently in a tie for 53rd.

Junior Enzo Perez is 2-over par through eight holes in his third round. He parred the first seven holes, before suffering a double-bogey on the par-3 2nd hole. He is currently 15-over par for the Championship with 10 holes to play.

Sophomore Stuart Macdonald continued his strong NCAA Championship by sitting three-over par through eight holes in the third round. Macdonald bogeyed two of his first four holes and then double-bogeyed his sixth hole (the par-3 2nd hole), but countered with a birdie on the par-3 4th hole to climb back to 3-over par. He is currently tied for 81st at 5-over par.

Freshman Austin Eoff is 4-over par through eight holes during the third round. Eoff double-bogeyed his second hole (No. 16), but then birdied No. 17 to improve to 1-over par. However, he bogeyed hole Nos. 18, 1 and 4 to fall back to 4-over par and 11-over par for the Championship.

Senior Adam Schenk is 5-over par through eight holes. He suffered a nine on the par-5 17th hole and then bogeyed No. 1 during his round. He is currently 15-over par for the Championship.

Purdue will wrap up its NCAA Golf Championship on Monday morning at 7:30 a.m., with the resumption and completion of the third and final round. The Boilermakers are appearing in their 27th all-time NCAA Championship, but first since 2005.
