2012 PGA Championship: Play Suspended, Will Resume Sunday Morning

It's going to be a long Sunday for the field at the PGA Championship. Due to a nasty storm that rolled in midway through Saturday's third round, play has been suspended until Sunday. They're done for the day, and plenty of players are still out on the course.

At the moment, the final pairing is through just seven holes, meaning Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh will have to finish up 11 holes on Sunday morning before even starting their final rounds. Play is expected to resume around 7:45 in the morning, with the final round set to begin around 11:30 a.m. It's unknown whether split tees or threesomes will be used in an effort to get the tournament finished by Sunday evening.

With play suspended, Rory McIlroy and Singh are tied for the lead at 6-under. Adam Scott is one shot back at 5-under and Carl Pettersson is two off the pace at 4-under. Noted golf enthusiast Woods is 3-over for his third round and has fallen back to 1-under for the tournament, five shots off the lead.

It's going to be a grind on Sunday, with many players having to play just about a round and a half. And that's if the weather cooperates after drenching the course and leaving puddles everywhere.
