Rain Washes Out Rd 3


Canadian Tour-LargeMONTREAL, Quebec -- Heavy rain has washed out the third round of the Canadian Tours $150,000 Montreal Open. The tournament has officially been reduced to 54 holes.
Tour officials made the announcement at noon (ET) Saturday when the torrential downpour left parts of Ile de Montreal GC under water. Stephen Woodard of Charlotte, NC will carry a two-shot lead on countrymen George Bradford and Clint Jensen into Sundays final round.
Five others, including Canadians Darren Griff, Stuart Anderson, Kent Fukushima and Craig Taylor, will begin the day three shots off the pace.
Woodard will be looking to become the first player to win back-to-back events in four years Sunday, two weeks after capturing the TELUS Edmonton Open.
Steven Alker of New Zealand won the final two events of the 2001 schedule, the McDonalds PEI Challenge and Bayer Championship, on his way to the money crown.
