Posted:

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) -- Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh are tied for the lead in the third round of the PGA Championship, which was halted Saturday because a downpour at Kiawah Island.

The third round is expected to resume Sunday morning, followed immediately by the fourth.

McIlroy birdied five of his first eight holes Saturday before a bogey on No. 9 dropped him back to 6-under par, even with Singh.

Tiger Woods entered the day sharing the lead, but was 3 over through seven to fall five strokes off the pace.

Adam Scott is second, a stroke behind the leaders. Carl Pettersson is another shot back.

McIlroy saved par on the third hole after his tee shot became stuck in a tree, and aside from that adventure, he wasn't having much trouble with Kiawah Island's Ocean Course early on.

Steve Stricker was able to complete his third round, carding a 5-under 67 to climb to within four strokes of the leaders.
