·1 min read

The third round of the U.S. Senior Open was delayed Saturday due to damage on the course after a storm rolled through the area.

Several massive trees were knocked over, uprooted by high winds. Some structures were also knocked down, including a TV tower, and some spectator seating areas were damaged, as video posted on Twitter by the PGA Tour Champions shows.

The course is now open and admission gates have opened. Play officially resumed at 11:15 a.m. ET. off the 1st and 10th tees.

The Omaha World-Herald reported that 141,000 people lost power and that the outages could last for a few days.

Jim Furyk was the overnight leader after his Friday 64. He leads by two over first-round co-leader Stephen Ames and by three over Miguel Angel Jimenez.
