Karlsson, English on top at OHL Classic

Playa del Carmen, Mexico (SportsNetwork.com) - Robert Karlsson and Harris English shared a 3-stroke lead on Saturday when play was called for the day at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Karlsson and English were 3-under par through seven holes of the third round and stood at 15-under par for the tournament.

There were no delays on Saturday, but the tournament is still catching up from delays on Thursday and Friday. The third round was suspended due to darkness and will resume on Sunday. The third round will resume on Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m. (ET).

Players will remain in the same groups for the final round.

Kevin Stadler bounced back from a double-bogey on the first with birdies on four and five. He was even-par after six holes and stood at 12-under par overall. Stadler was joined there by Rory Sabbatini, who was minus-3 through eight holes.

Alvaro Quiros (14 holes), Jason Bohn (nine holes) and Chris Stroud (eight holes) share fifth at 11-under par at El Camaleon Golf Course.

Stadler shared the second-round lead with Karlsson and English. On the first, a poor drive and a bad chip shot led to an opening double-bogey that dropped him two back.

Karlsson parred the first two holes, then poured in three consecutive birdies from the third to soar into the lead at 15-under. He remained there with pars on six and seven before play was stopped for the day.

English opened with three straight pars. He dropped in a birdie effort on the par-3 fourth to get to 13-under. The St. Jude Classic winner converted birdie tries at six and seven to join Karlsson in the lead.

Spencer Levin, Justin Leonard, Scott Brown and Charles Howell III are tied for eighth place at minus-10.

Defending champion John Huh stands at 1-under par through 15 holes to get to 5-under overall. He is tied for 37th.

NOTES: No group completed more that 15 holes, while Stadler has a putt on the seventh to finish his hole when play resumes on Sunday ... Twenty-five of the 46 tournaments this calendar year have had a weather delay.
