Karlsson still on top in Mexico
Sweden’s Robert Karllson retained a share of the lead midway through the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
The 44-year-old is level with American Harris English on 15 under par, though both men had completed only seven holes of their third rounds when bad light brought an end to proceedings at the weather-affected event.
Karlsson will return to the El Camaleon course on Sunday and hope to complete a Swedish double, with his compatriot Henrik Stenson looking to wrap up victory in the DP World Tour Championship and secure the Race to Dubai.
Karlsson is three under for his third round so far, having picked up three successive birdies from the third, a feat which fellow leader English equalled.
English had earlier equalled the lowest round of his career by signing for a second-round nine-under-par 62.
The pair are three shots clear of South African Rory Sabbatini who is on 12 under after eight holes, the same score as overnight leader Kevin Stadler, who has completed six holes.
Spain’s Alvaro Quiros is making a third-round charge after six birdies in 14 holes took him to 11 under and joint-fifth place with American duo Jason Bohn and Chris Stroud.
A deluge of rain hit the course from Wednesday afternoon to Friday afternoon and because of the wet conditions, players are using preferred lies.
“It’s unbelievable, I think, that we’re playing golf at all,” Karlsson said. “The amount of rain we’ve had, the golf course should be unplayable. So, to just play is fantastic. It’s drying out nicely day by day.”
