After another long day of golf at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, it was Harris English and Robert Karlsson who were out in front when the third round was suspended Saturday evening due to darkness.

Both players are at 15 under through seven holes and will finish their third rounds early Sunday morning.

English used a second-round 62, which he finished up Saturday, to vault up the leaderboard while Karlsson played just seven holes Saturday after finishing his second round on Friday.
