The third round of the CIMB Classic was delayed for inclement weather at 12:21 p.m. local time (12:21 a.m. ET). UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 2:45 p.m. local time.
This is the earliest the horn has sounded in any of the three days in Kuala Lumpur. None of the 77 golfers that remain in the field have finished 54 holes. All have completed at least nine. When play resumes, Brendon de Jonge will polish off what has been a fruitful day. He's 6-under-par through 17 holes with seven birdies against one bogey. He opened the tournament with a 2-under 70 to prove that the playoff loss in Sea Island and the long travel didn't put an end to his momentum, but the week may have caught up with him on Friday as he shot 1-over 73. However, with today's effort thus far, he sits T11 at 7-under through 53 holes, just five strokes off the pace of Sergio Garcia, who is through 10 holes in his third round. Incidentally, preferred lies has been in play throughout the tournament.
