Birdies at the eighth and ninth took American Nick Watney into a two-stroke lead when the Players Championship resumed at Sawgrass.

A long storm delay on Saturday afternoon meant the third round had to be completed on Sunday morning and Watney, setting off again on the sixth tee, quickly moved onto 13 under par.

Graeme McDowell was 11 under with Steve Stricker and David Toms, while Luke Donald and Alvaro Quiros were two further back.
