The horn sounded for the second time during the third round of THE PLAYERS at 7:48 p.m. ET, this time due to darkness.
Among those stranded on the course is Lee Westwood. He went through the first 36 holes without a blemish, but made a double-bogey six on the opening hole after swinging and missing on his second shot from a native area. On the miss, he appeared to hurt his hand and confirmed to NBC on-course reporters that he was in some pain. Perhaps the break in the action to rest his hand is what he needs, as he is 3-over-par through 15 holes in his round. Everyone is chasing David Lingmerth. The rookie is 12-under through 17 holes and two clear of Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson. It was announced at the end of the live NBC telecast that the third round will resume at 7 a.m.
