Play Suspended, Ogilvy Holds Slim Lead at Doral

Geoff Ogilvy leads by one stroke after the final round at Doral was suspended due to darkness. Mother Nature forced an extended rain delay today, the tourney’s second stoppage in two days. Despite the weather, the golf is good as the leaderboard is crowded with big-name players. Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk are among them – both are two behind Ogilvy.

  Tiger Woods – winner of the last three championships at Doral - remains five strokes back after 11. His six-tourney PGA winning streak is in jeopardy. ''I'm sure he probably thinks he has a chance, and we've seen him do crazy things before,'' Ogilvy said. The leader is 7-under par through nine holes. Players will tee off again at 8:30 a.m.—weather permitting. (More golf stories.)
