BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- Just before a thunderstorm hit
Oakland Hills and suspended third round play at the 90th PGA
Championship, Andres Romero provided a little thunder of his own.
The 27-year-old Argentine tied a competitive course record with
a 5-under 65, the best score at the PGA Championship all week.
Romero climbed from a tie for 48th into a tie for eighth in the
span of four hours.
Play was suspended shortly before leader J.B. Holmes and the
rest of the top scorers were to tee off. Heavy rain, thunder and
lightning rocked the course for the rest of the afternoon. Holmes
has a one-shot lead over Ben Curtis, Justin Rose and Charlie Wi
Play was suspended with Camilo Villegas (kuh-MIHL'-oh
vih-JAY'-guhs) and Graeme McDowell each at 4-under for the day.
The players were scheduled to resume their rounds at 7:15 a.m.
Sunday. The PGA said it expects the fourth round to get under way
at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time.
