After a nearly two-hour lightning delay, the third round of The Players resumed at 6 p.m.  Golfers headed to the range to warm up prior to returning to the course.

2009 Players Champion Henrik Stenson was the leader at -11 through 9 holes. Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods are both at -10 on the 7th hole.Jeff Maggert with the round of the day is in the clubhouse at -9 (66).

“Well it was quite breezy. It wasn’t very easy, but I felt like, for the most part, I played quite nicely," said Garcia.  "We’ll see if the wind blows back the way it was blowing. It was blowing from a different direction, so that made it a little bit tougher.”

Weather permitting, golf will continue until the light fails, and anyone who doesn't complete 18 on Saturday could finish Sunday morning before the final round tees off.
