Rain suspends PGA play

A thunderstorm dumped 2{ inches of rain and suspended the second round of the FedEx-St. Jude Classic with less than half the field finished.

Jim Gallagher, playing in the sixth group off the 10th tee, came within a putt of walking off the TPC at Southwind course with the early lead. He stood at 14 under through 35 holes with 8-under-par 63 and faced a 20-footer for birdie when play was stopped at 12:13 p.m. CDT.

Ben Nelson, PGA Tour tournament director, said the round would resume today.

Meanwhile, John Daly said he will not play again until the British Open in three weeks after headaches forced him to withdraw.

"I almost passed out last Thursday because of the headaches," Daly told Memphis' Commercial Appeal. "I've had them for the last month, and they've just gotten worse."

Daly, a recovering alcoholic who says he has not had a drink for more than two years: "In going through sobriety, people have told me they've had headaches for a two- or three-year period."
