Instead of playing 72-holes to determine the champion, the winning country will receive the 34th Eisenhower Trophy following Sunday's third round play.

After play was suspended on Friday due to weather delays, the entire field was able to able to finish their second round on Saturday, while a handful of golfers were able to begin the final round before the weather rolled in and brought play to a halt.
