Australian Geoff Ogilvy led by two shots from American Jim Furyk and Fiji's Vijay Singh at the WGC-CA on Sunday but was having to return to the course yesterday to finish his final round.
World number one Tiger Woods's hopes of maintaining his winning streak look slim as he trails by five shots with seven holes remaining.
Nearly three hours of play were lost on Sunday due to dangerous weather. The final round had already started late due to the completion of the third round earlier in the day.
Ogilvy was one under for his round after nine holes when the horn blew to bring proceedings to a close.
"It was a long day. I warmed up four times. It was getting pretty dark out there. I was going all right, had my first bogey on the seventh hole, which is disappointing, but apart from that it wasn't too bad," Ogilvy told reporters.
Singh climbed into contention with an excellent third-round nine-under-par 63 and he made three birdies on his opening nine holes to keep the pressure on 2006 U.S Open champion Ogilvy.
Furyk's third-round 64 moved him into the frame and he will have been frustrated to have bogeyed twice in an opening nine that also contained five birdies.
"I'm playing pretty good, I made a bunch of birdies and got myself back in the tournament," he said.
Play was to restart at 8:30 a.m. (Florida time) yesterday with South African Retief Goosen and England's Graeme Storm also in the frame at 14 under, three shots off the pace.
Goosen birdied three of his last four holes in the third round as he made a smart 64 before going three under over the first 10 holes of the last round.
Storm's excellent 63 in the third round brought him into the race for the US$1.44 million winner's prize.
"That was the best round of my life," he told reporters before picking up two birdies at the start of his final round.
Woods may fail to win a tournament for the first time since September. The 32-year-old American has won his last seven tournaments worldwide and nine of his last 10 but he has struggled on the greens this week.
