Play was delayed nearly 2 1/2 hours because of wet conditions at one point and a second delay led to suspension of play. There has been more than 1 foot of rain at the El Camaleon course over the last 10 days.
Only 15 players completed the first round Thursday.
Organizers said play would resume at 7:45 a.m. EST Friday and the second round would begin as soon as possible after the first round was completed.
Stuard, with six birdies and a bogey, was 5-under through 15 holes. Erik Compton, who has played 17 holes, and Alvaro Quiros, who got 15 in, are at 4-under. Four players, including Jeff Maggert, are at 3-under.
