Before fourth play was suspended Sunday night, Rory Mcllroy was two under par after ten holes and two over par for the tournament, while Graeme McDowell was even after four holes and level par for the competition.

McIlroy, who started on the back nine at 5.45 p.m., has had the best start of all competitors in the final round so far, with two birdies on 11 and 14.  The 20-year-old is currently in a tie for 19th place and is well poised for a strong finish when play resumes at 9 a.m. in the morning.

Graeme McDowell started his final round at 6.57 p.m. on the first tee alongside Sean O'Hair.  The 29-year-old made a solid start, carding four consecutive pars before being called into the clubhouse, and is currently tied for eighth position, seven strokes behind co-leaders Lucas Glover and Ricky Barnes.

The final pair got just one hole played before the end of play, with Glover making a par and Barnes dropping a shot.

Phil Mickelson, David Duval, Ross Fisher and Hunter Mahan are in a tie for second place on two under par.
