Lightning strikes during Saturday's Tour Championship in Atlanta have left multiple fans injured.

Two lightning strikes happened at East Lake Golf Club, one hitting a maintenance area and another striking a fan zone.

A tree was hit and debris from that strike injured six people, the PGA Tour said, adding that the injuries "do not appear to be life-threatening". 

Third round play will resume on Sunday at 1200 GMT. "The safety of our fans, players and partners is of the utmost importance," the organisers added.
