NEWTON SQUARE, Penn. -- Heavy downpours forced officials to suspend the third round of the Senior PGA Championship on Saturday. Golfers will return to their places Sunday morning at 8:00 AM ET to complete the third round.
 
The final round is scheduled to tee off Sunday at 11:00 AM with players going off in threesomes off both the first and 10th tees.
 
Seiji Ebihara is 2-under through five holes and took over the lead. He is currently 4-under par for the championship and owns a two-shot advantage over the overnight leaders, Gil Morgan and Allen Doyle, and John Jacobs.
 
Morgan and Doyle are both 2-over par through five holes while Jacobs is 1-over through the same number of holes.
 
Ebihara birdied the par-4 third hole and the par-3 fifth hole to surge into the lead. He climbed up the leaderboard on Friday with a 4-under 66, which matched the competitive course record at Aronimink Golf Club.
 
Des Smyth is 1-under through eight holes and stands at even par for the championship. Bobby Wadkins, a co-leader after the first round, is even through seven holes and Tom Kite is 2-over through five holes but the pair is tied for fifth with Smyth at even par.
 
Defending champion Fuzzy Zoeller, Jose Maria Canizares, Vicente Fernandez and Wayne Levi share eighth place at 1-over par and all four completed seven holes Saturday before play was washed out.
 
Craig Stadler, who made his Champions Tour debut this week, was assessed a two-stroke penalty at the start of the round for being late for his tee time. He is currently 4-over on his round through seven holes and stands at 3-over par for the tournament.
