Alex Thompson added to her lead Thursday
in the third round of the Junior PGA Championship before rain
interrupted play at the TPC River's Bend course.
Thompson, of Coral Springs, Fla., built a four-stroke lead over
Kimberly Kim of Pahoa, Hawaii. The 14-year-old Thompson has led the
girls' division after all three days of play. She won the
tournament in 2007. Rain started falling as Thompson finished the last four holes. Play was suspended after the girls finished, then resumed a couple of hours later. Play in the boys' division was suspended because of darkness.
"The last few holes was a downpour, but I came out of them
fine," Thompson said.
T.J. Vogel of Cooper City, Fla., made it through 12 holes in the
third round before play was called. Vogel led after the second day
and held a three-stroke lead when play was called in the third
round, which will resume on Friday morning.
