SINGAPORE (AP) — Ian Poulter was 4 over through six holes Saturday in the third round of the Singapore Open, dropping the Englishman into a tie for the Singapore Open lead with France's Thomas Levet and Japan's Kodai Ichihara.

Poulter, five strokes ahead after completing a second-round 64 in the morning, faltered in the afternoon to fall to 8 under before thunderstorms stopped play.

Levet and Ichihara were both 2 under for the round. Levet completed eight holes, and Ichihara finished seven.

"There are so many guys close the top of the leaderboard, within a few shots, so this tournament is nowhere near finished," Levet said. "I'm looking forward to tomorrow because I love the battle."

Australia's Andrew Dodt and China's Liang Wen-Chong were a stroke back, with both finishing nine holes.

Ernie Els was in a group at 5 under. He had 10 holes left. Phil Mickelson was 2 under after 15 holes, and Padraig Harrington was 2 over through eight.

The second round was completed Saturday because of rain delays the previous two days. The third round was scheduled to finish Sunday morning.
