Bernd Wiesberger defends lead in stormy Shenzhen

Three-time European Tour champion Bernd Wiesberger extended his lead in the tense third round of the Shenzhen International. Wiesberger, who has not missed a cut in the last eight months, scored three under par on the third day of play of the storm-interrupted tournament in southern China. The 31-year-old Austrian had taken a commanding clubhouse lead on Friday with a four-shot overnight advantage before heavy rain and lightning halted play for the second day in a row.

Others caught up quickly to him as skies cleared early Saturday, with both France's Grégory Bourdy and Finland's Mikko Korhonen making a hole-in-one. But a strong performance later in the day from Wiesberger put him at a score of 69 and a 15 under par total.
