Instead, more bad weather rolled in, delaying the morning start over five hours.
Following a long morning of rain delays to finish up Round 2 of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, Zach Johnson, Cameron Tringale and Jonathan Byrd told Rickie Fowler they'd watch him finish out his final holes.
Rodgers, who reached 11 under after four straight birdies, had just three holes left in the second round when the horn blew, having been seven under through 15 on Friday.
Fowler, who opened with a confident 65 in his first start of the new PGA Tour season, cruised to the turn in 33 and picked up further shots at the 10th and 13th before carding his first bogey of the tournament at the next after finding water off the tee.
Fowler had three holes remaining when play was called off on day two at Mayakoba following a lengthy earlier suspension due to stormy weather, and the resumption of play was again held up by the elements on Saturday.
Island Air shutting down Saturday
Meanwhile, Hawaiian Airlines has announced that it will honor Island Air tickets from Saturday through November 17. Island Air is halting all service Friday , after "exhausting all options" in its bid to find a new stream of cash.
The four-time tour victor has now made 10 straight cuts, and looks to finish at least inside the top 10 for the sixth time during that stretch. Kizzire, who didn't even hit a shot on Saturday, opened with rounds of 62 and 70 in Mexico.
"I'm very happy, coming from basically five weeks of very little golf played", Fowler said.
With the forecast, there was no guarantee of getting in 72 holes.
Rodgers, Fowler and Kizzire will begin their third rounds at 7:35 a.m. EST. He's also looking for his first PGA Tour victory. Eleven players are at six under, including Retief Goosen and Beau Hossler, who each completed their second round.
