JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP)

Defending champion Lee Westwood birdied two of the first four holes and moved to 13 under at the Indonesian Masters on Saturday before lightning and rain halted the third round.

UNFAIR WEATHER

Mother Nature has sometimes played a big role in games. See sports' scariest "rain delays".

Zaw Moe of Myanmar was second at 9 under through four holes when play was suspended at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club.

''The suspension stopped a bit of momentum. But if it is dangerous weather out there then it is the safest thing to do,'' Westwood said. ''It is disappointing for everybody - the players, sponsors and the spectators. But this is the nature of the weather in this part of the world.''

Lee Sung of Korea, Shiv Kapur of India and Bernd Wiesberger of Austria were tied at 7 under. No players completed the third round.

The 70 golfers will resume play early Sunday.
