Storms disrupt play again at Australian PGA
BY iseekgolf.com | Australasian PGA Tour | 2002 Australian PGA Championship | Final Round | 01 Dec 2002
Update – Play has resumed at 3:40pm
The threat of storms has stopped play midway through the fourth round of the $1 million Australian PGA championship on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Overnight leader, Jarrod Moseley maintains his lead, although Peter Lonard has shortened the deficit to just three strokes.
Moseley had a shaky start to the day with a bogey at the 1st hole followed by another at the 4th hole. He returned to Even for the day with birdies coming at the 2nd and 6th holes.
Peter Lonard is just three strokes off the pace at -15 following birdies at the 4th and 7th holes. Lonard needs a top 5 finish in order to maintain his hopes of a berth in US Masters next year.
Greg Norman has made his trademark final round charge today with birdies coming at the 2nd, 4th, 8th and 9th holes to give him an outward nine total of 32. With nine holes to go and four shots from Moseley, Norman is still well within contention for his 3rd Australian PGA title and his first since 1985.
Despite a solid start with two birdies coming over the first five holes, Aaron Baddeley may well be out of contention following a double-bogey at the par-3 6th. Baddeley had moved to -14 but faltered on a short putt to slip back to -12 before pulling back a stroke at 8th.
Play is expected to resume within the hour once officials have determined that the threat of lightning has passed.
