|Third Round of State Farm Postponed Due to Rain
|SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- The third round of the LPGA State Farm Classic was postponed Saturday because of thunderstorms.
Heavy rain suspended play for four hours before the round was halted with 46 players still on the course. The round is scheduled to resume at 8 a.m. EDT Sunday, but rain is expected again.
Second-round leader M.J. Hur and Cristie Kerr sit atop the leaderboard at 13 under. Amy Yang, playing in the final group with Hur, and Anna Nordqvist are a shot back. Morgan Pressel, who was through 16 holes when play was stopped, is tied with Alena Sharp and Gwladys Nocera at 11 under.
The last time a round in this event was rained out was 2003, when heavy rains forced the cancellation of the fourth round. Third-round leader Candie Kung was declared the champion that year.
