WILLIAMSNURG, Va. (AP) Minjee Lee played a five-hole stretch in 5 under to open a four-stroke lead Sunday when final-round play was suspended because of darkness in the LPGA Tour’s Kingsmill Championship.

After making an eagle on the par-5 15th to cap the five-hole run, the 18-year-old Australian was on the par-4 16th when the horn sounded. She hit her approach to the green, but opted to mark the ball and finish the hole when play resumes at 7 a.m. Monday on Kingsmill Resort’s River Course.

Lee was 7 under in a 10-hole stretch after a 2-hour rain delay to reach 16 under.

Alison Lee was alone in second with four holes to play. Former champion Suzann Pettersen was the only one in a five-way tie for third at 10 under to finish. She shot 68. Perrine Delacour, Paula Creamer, So Yeon Ryu and Hyo Joo Kim also were 10 under.
