SINGAPORE (AP) — Thomas Bjorn of Denmark had to wait more than 36 hours to tee off in the second round of the rain-soaked Singapore Open. The delay may have helped him.
Bjorn shot a 67 on Saturday to move into the lead and held a one-stroke advantage over Chris Wood of Britain in the third round before play was halted because of darkness.
Tropical downpours caused havoc with the schedule, forcing golfers to finish the second round early Saturday and start the third round hours later. Officials were still planning to have them play 72 holes unless storms caused more delays on Sunday.
Bjorn was at nine under after completing three holes in the third round. George Coetzee of South Africa was in third place at 7 under, one stroke ahead of Francesco Molinari of Italy and Chapchai Nirat of Thailand.
Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland was at four under. He began to make a run at the start of the third round with a birdie and an eagle on the par-5 4th hole, but he hit into the water off his tee shot on the sixth and took a double bogey.
He was in a tie for 13th after completing nine holes.
