SEOUL, South Korea– Miguel Angel Jimenez and Brett Rumford shared the lead at 10 under when third-round play in the Ballantine’s Championship was suspended Saturday because of heavy rain and lightning.

Jimenez, the 47-year-old Spanish star who has 18 European Tour victories, and Rumford, from Australia, completed nine holes. Jimenez was 3 under for the day, and Rumford was even par on the Blackstone course.

Wales’ Rhys Davies was a stroke back at 8 under with seven holes left. American star Dustin Johnson was 7 under with eight holes to play, and top-ranked Lee Westwood was 6 under with six holes left.

“Well as predicted the thunder/lightning and heavy rains come in!” Westwood posted on his Twitter account.

The event is sanctioned by the European and Asians tours and the Korea PGA.
