Saturday’s third round of the Tour Championship in Atlanta was suspended due to lightning, with world number one Scottie Scheffler still in the lead (Scheffler 21/20 – outright).

Scheffler leads by one shot on 19-under par, but there could be plenty of drama on Sunday, with 14 players still to complete their round at East Lake.

Fellow American Xander Schauffele (15/8 to win – outright) remains Scheffler’s nearest rival on 18-under, while Sungjae Im sits alone in third, a further two shots back from Schauffele.

Play will resume at 14:45 BST on Sunday, with the final round to follow, but Scheffler will fancy his chances of holding on.

The 26-year-old has already won four times in 2022, including April’s success at The Masters at Augusta National. Even though the weather delay has changed the dynamics of the event, Scheffler says he is only focused on himself.

He told the PGA Tour: “I was kind of trying to stay in my own little world. Still, with a 72-hole event, I think it’s still pretty early in the tournament, and right now, I think we’re all just kind of jockeying for position, and I was just out there trying to hit some quality shots, so it doesn’t do me too well to be paying attention to what other people do.

“But at the end of the day, it’s still a golf tournament, and I’ve been in some intense situations this year, the Masters definitely being one of them, and the other three tournaments and kind of the start-stop of the Match Play would definitely be something that would be similar to tomorrow.”

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy (11/1 to win – outright) sits in fourth on 15-under par with two holes of his third round to play, while Justin Thomas, Sepp Straka, Jon Rahm and Patrick Cantlay share fifth on 14-under.
