PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Swedish rookie David Lingmerth emerged from the storm clouds to take the lead Saturday in The Players Championship.

Lingmerth ended a long day at the TPC Sawgrass with an 8-foot eagle putt on the 16th hole and a 10-foot birdie putt on the island-green 17th. That put him at 12-under-par when the round was suspended because of darkness. There was a two-hour delay earlier because of storms.

Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson - all former Players Championship winners - were two shots behind.

Garcia suggested that Woods was to blame for his poor shot on the second hole. The crowd cheered when Woods took out a fairway metal to play a risky shot, right as Garcia was hitting his shot.

Ten players didn't finish the third round. You can watch the final round Sunday on NBC and WGRZ-TV with coverage scheduled to begin at 2-pm.
