HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (AP) - Anna Nordqvist weathered a lengthy
rain delay and fading daylight to take one-shot lead over Lindsey Wright in the LPGA Championship when play was halted in the third round Saturday.

Nordqvist made a 20-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole after the horn stopped play because of darkness. The players were allowed to finish the hole, and the rookie from Sweden took advantage by moving to 10-under par.

Wright - one of eight players who failed to finish - also played 15 holes.
