ORLANDO, Fla. -- A day after fierce thunderstorms wreaked havoc at Bay Hill, the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard is set to resume at 10 a.m. ET in clear, cool and breezy conditions.
Play was suspended on Sunday just after 2 p.m. due to dangerous weather in the area. About 15 minutes later, the skies opened up and wind gusts reached as high as 60 mph.
The storm lasted 2 1/2 hours and play was eventually called for the day just after 4 p.m. after the course had suffered significant damage and taken on 1 1/2 inches of rain.
There are 43 players who did not finish the round.
Golf Channel will begin its coverage at 10 a.m. PGATOUR.COM's LIVE@ and PGA TOUR SiriusXM coverage will also begin at that time.
This is the sixth tournament this season to be affected by weather and the third to finish a day later than originally scheduled.
When play does resume, Tiger Woods will have a three-stroke lead over Keegan Bradley, Ken Duke, John Huh and Rickie Fowler.
Woods was 1 under on his round after a birdie on the second hole when the horn sounded.
Should Woods go on to win, he would move back to No. 1 in the world for the first time since Oct. 31, 2010. It would also be his eighth title here at Bay Hill, matching Sam Snead as the only players ever to have the same event that many times.
