Ogilvy Holds Lead Over Tiger Woods As Rain Ends Play
Posted on March 22, 2008NBC Sports reports that Tiger Woods continued to struggle as Geoff Ogilvy maintained his lead on the third-round at the WGA-CA Championship. Adam Scott had a very good day before the rain moved in.
Geoff Ogilvy was at 14-under par through 11 holes and kept his one-shot lead, only now it was Adam Scott on his heels, not the world's No. 1 player who has won every tournament he has played since September.Adam Scott was playing well and was unhappy about the rain. Scott said, "If it was our day, it was cut off way too short." You can see a list of the Saturday night leaders here.
Woods was at 11 under, even for the day, the only player among the top 18 who was not under par for the round.
Scott was practically flawless, making up five shots in five holes against Woods, taking the outright lead with a 25-foot birdie putt that swirled around the cup before falling, looking confident with every hole he played. Ogilvy still hasn't made a bogey this week, and two late birdies allowed him to regain the lead.
And then it rained.
The following announcement has been made about the suspension of Saturday's round.
Play was suspended at 1:15 p.m. due to a dangerous situation. The 61 players (out of 79) who did not finish their round will be back in position at 8:30 a.m. Sunday. The final round is expected to begin between 11:35 a.m.-1:45 p.m. with threesomes off of split tees.
