BEACHWOOD, Ohio (AP) Bobby Wyatt took a one-stroke lead over Bryson DeChambeau on Thursday in the rain-delayed DAP Championship, the inaugural tournament that opens the four-event Tour Finals.

Wyatt closed with a birdie for a 7-under 63 at Canterbury Golf Club. DeChambeau, the former SMU player who swept the 2015 NCAA and U.S. Amateur titles, birdied the final two holes for a 64.

D.A. Points and Zack Sucher shot 65, and Stuart Appleby, Ted Potter Jr. and John Mallinger followed at 66. None of the afternoon starters were able to complete the round that was delayed for more than three hours because of rain and suspended for the day at 6:58 p.m. when another strom rolled in.

The four-event series features the top 75 players from the Tour money list, Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings and non-members such as Wyatt and DeChambeau who earned enough money to have placed in the top 200 had they been eligible.

The top 25 players on the Tour regular-season money list earned PGA Tour cards. They are competing against each other for tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals. The other players are fighting for 25 cards based on series earnings.
