PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) -- Brian Stuard topped the OHL Classic leaderboard at 5 under with three holes left Thursday when first-round play was suspended for the day because of rain and wet conditions.

More than 3 inches of rain soaked the Mayakoba Resort since early Wednesday night.

Play was suspended from 8:40 to 11 a.m., and stopped again at 1:22 p.m. It was called for the day at 3:30 p.m., with only 15 players able to finish their rounds on the El Camaleon course.

Two-time heart transplant recipient Erik Compton and Alvaro Quiros were a stroke back. Compton completed 17 holes, and Quiros finished 15.

The PGA Tour event offers full FedEx Cup points for the first time and the winner will get a spot in the Masters. It was previously played in February opposite the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play.
