Third round of State Farm postponed due to rain

The third round of the LPGA State Farm Classic has been

postponed because of thunderstorms.

Heavy rain suspended play for four hours Saturday before the

round was halted with 46 players still on the course. The round is

scheduled to resume Sunday morning, but rain is expected again.

Second-round leader M.J. Hur and Cristie Kerr sit atop the

leaderboard at 13 under. Amy Yang and Anna Nordqvist are a shot

back. Morgan Pressel, who was through 16 holes when play was

stopped, is tied with Alena Sharp and Gwladys Nocera at 11

under.

The last time a round in this event was rained out was 2003,

when heavy rains forced the cancellation of the fourth round.

Third-round leader Candie Kung was declared the champion that

year.
