[June 30, 2012]  BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- A massive storm overnight has suspended the third round of the AT&T National because of several trees on the ground at Congressional. Officials say even if the course gets ready, fans will not be allowed Saturday.

The storm caused power outages and downed trees throughout the region.

Among the problems at Congressional were scattered trees, including a large tree down on the 14th hole.

Volunteers also have been told to stay home Saturday.

Tournament officials will honor all Saturday tickets on Sunday. Workers were trying to get the course ready through the night, though it was unclear if it would be ready for Saturday.
