Martin Kaymer of Germany had a three-shot lead with five holes to play at The Players Championship when storms interrupted the final round.

Play was halted Sunday as Jim Furyk was lining up a 3-foot par putt for a 66 that would put him at 12-under 276.

Kaymer was at 15 under and had a 30-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole.

The 29-year-old German has been practically flawless in the final round. He made birdies on every par 5 and did not have a bogey on his card. Jordan Spieth, tied with Kaymer going into Sunday, made his first bogey of the tournament on the fifth hole. Spieth added two more bogeys and was four shots behind.

Kaymer is trying to win for the first time nearly 18 months.
