(KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C.) — Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh are tied for the lead through nine holes at The Ocean Course after the third round was suspended for rain on Saturday night.
Both are 6-under par through nine holes and McIlroy is happy with his performance thus far.
“It’s nice going into the finally day, hopefully we get it finished, in a great position,” said McIlroy. “Being 27 holes, I don’t mind a bit if it takes awhile to get done.”
Tiger Woods went from sharing the lead to start the day to being 1 under before play was suspended. Woods struggled to make birdies on the early holes and hit a spectator with a fairway metal off the tee at the fourth. After bogeying on the par-5 seventh, he missed a putt.
Adam Scott is 5 under and sitting in second ahead of Carl Pettersson and Bo Van Pelt.
“I did what I could do and I’m sure before I go to bed tonight I’ll know kind of where I stand going into tomorrow and see what happens,” said Van Pelt who is 3 under and tied with Trevor Immelman.
Play will start again on Sunday morning at 7:45 ET.
