A mid-afternoon downpour halted play in the 2000 Maryland State Amateur Golf tournament Thursday at Fountain Head Country Club Course.
Only half of the 120 golfers completed play, with University of Maryland's Keith Unikel carding a 5-under-par 66, including a 30 on the back nine, to take the clubhouse lead.
Four golfers have completed their qualifying round at par or better. Miguel Rivera of Maryland Golf had a 68, Nick Angelo of Rolling Road had a 69 and Joe Records of Hillendale had a 71.
Today's two rounds of match play will begin after the other 60 finish their qualifying round, as well as any possible playoffs. That's, of course, weather permitting.
