GOTEMBA, Japan (AP) Hirofumi Miyase shot a 5-under 67 Saturday to take a one-stroke clubhouse lead before darkness suspended the rainy third round at the Taiheiyo Masters.
Miyase had five birdies in a bogey-free outing. He was one of only nine players to complete the round after the start was delayed 3 hours because of heavy rain at Taiheiyo Club.
Miyase was at 7-under 209 overall, while Daisuke Maruyama (68) eagled the 18th and was a shot back along with PGA Tour player Ryuji Imada (69).
Japanese teenager Ryo Ishikawa was at 7 under with five holes remaining in the third round.
