Brandt Snedeker held a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Wyndham Championship when the third round was suspended because of severe weather.
Snedeker was 16 under for the tournament with 11 holes left in the round at the final event of the PGA Tour’s regular season.
Brian Gay was 13 under through 12 holes, and Trey Mullinax, Keith Mitchell, C.T. Pan and D.A. Points were another stroke back at varying stages of their rounds.
Thirty players were still on the course when play was halted during the mid-afternoon with thunder booming and a threat of lightning. After a three-hour, 23-minute delay, organizers chose to hold things up overnight and resume the round at 8 a.m. Sunday.
Michael Bradley leads Dick’s Sporting Goods Open
Michael Bradley shot a four-under 68 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the PGA Tour Champions’ Dick’s Sporting Goods Open.
The 52-year-old Bradley had five birdies and a bogey in the rain-delayed round to reach 11-under 133 at En-Joie Golf Club. A four-time winner on the PGA Tour, he’s seeking his first victory on the 50-and-over tour.
Bart Bryant and Marco Dawson were tied for second. Bryant, the 2013 winner at En-Joie for his lone Champions title, had a 67. Dawson shot 70.
Wes Short Jr. (65), Clark Dennis (70) and Tom Gillis (69) were nine under, and Kenny Perry (69) was seven under with first-round leader Doug Garwood (73), Mark Calcavecchia (69), Woody Austin (71), Jerry Haas (68) and Scott Parel (68). Perry won the 3M Championship two weeks ago in Minnesota.
Bernard Langer, the 2014 winner, was five under after a 69. Defending champion Scott McCarron had a 71 to get to one under. John Daly, the winner of the PGA Tour’s 1992 B.C. Open at En-Joie, was six over after rounds of 73 and 77.
Salas takes advantage of Park’s mistake to grab LPGA lead
Lizette Salas shot an eight-under 64 on Saturday to take a two-shot lead over Sung Hyun Park and Amy Yang after the third round of the Indy Women in Tech Championship.
The 29-year-old former Southern California player hasn’t won on the LPGA Tour since 2014. She took the lead with a birdie on the par-four, 16th — after Park hit her approach into the water en route to a double bogey.
Salas was at 21-under 195 at Brickyard Crossing. She matched the course record Thursday with a 62 and shot 69 in the second round.
Park, the two-time major winner from South Korea, was flirting with a 54-hole scoring record before the miscue. Park had a 66 as she chases her third win this season and tries to reclaim the world’s No. 1 ranking.
Yang shot 65. Defending champ Lexi Thompson was five shots back after playing 27 holes in 10 under Saturday, posting rounds of 68 and 64.
Waring, Aiken share 3rd-round lead at Nordea Masters
Paul Waring of England and Thomas Aiken of South Africa share the lead, three shots clear of their rivals, after the third round of the Nordea Masters on the European Tour on Saturday.
Waring was tied for first place with Scott Jamieson after the second round and shot a one-under 69.
While Jamieson (75) slipped down the leaderboard, Aiken caught up Waring after shooting 67 — despite three straight bogeys from No. 15. He bounced back by making birdie at the last.
Thorbjorn Olesen (67) and Marc Warren (66) are tied for third.
