Bjorn holds 1-stroke lead at Singapore Open
SINGAPORE (AP) — Thomas Bjorn took a one-stroke lead over England's Chris Wood before play was halted Saturday during the third round of the rain-delayed Singapore Open.
Tropical downpours have caused havoc with the schedule this week, forcing golfers to finish the second round early Saturday and then hurriedly start the third round hours later. Officials are still planning to play 72 holes unless storms cause more delays on Sunday.
Bjorn shot a 67 in the second round to take a two-stroke lead at 9-under 133, but Wood pulled within one with a birdie at the start of the third round. Both players only got through three holes before play was stopped because of darkness.
South Africa's George Coetzee was in third place at 7 under, one stroke ahead of Italy's Francesco Molinari and Thailand's Chapchai Nirat.
Rory McIlroy was at 4 under overall, five strokes behind the leader.
