HAYWARD, Calif. (AP) -- Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice was 8-over par after eight holes when first-round play was suspended because of darkness in the Nationwide Tour's TPC Stonebrae Championship.

Rice had three bogeys, a double bogey, a triple-bogey and three pars in cold, rainy and windy conditions. The tournament host missed the cut the last two years.

Ben Martin topped the leaderboard at 5-under 65.

The start of play was delayed 2 hours because of fog. Seventy-eight players were unable to finish the round.
