Third-round play scheduled to resume at 6


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The Tiger vs. Sergio duel has been put on hold.

Third-round play at The Players was suspended at 4:09 p.m. ET Saturday with inclement weather approaching TPC Sawgrass.

Play is scheduled to resume at 6 p.m. local time. 

Woods and Garcia, one stroke behind Henrik Stenson (11 under), were in the seventh fairway when the horn sounded.

Jeff Maggert already was in the clubhouse at 9-under 207, after the best round of the day, a 6-under 66.

This is only the second weather delay at The Players since the event moved to May in 2007. The other was the third round in 2011.

Incredibly, it’s the 10th weather-related delay of the season.

Officials sent the final group off at 2:40 p.m. local time despite the threat of storms between 2 and 6. The forecast for Sunday isn’t much better, with a 50 percent chance of storms.
