SHANGHAI, China — England’s Oliver Wilson was the surprise leader after the third round of the rain-delayed HSBC Champions.
Wilson shot a 3-under 69 for a three-round total of 12-under 204. That put him one shot ahead of Australia’s Geoff Ogilvy (70) and two ahead of American Phil Mickelson (70), Sweden’s Henrik Stenson (72) and Spain’s Sergio Garcia (72).
The final round of the joint European and Asian tour event will be played over Sunday and Monday.
All play was washed out Friday. That pushed the second round and first few holes of the third back to Saturday. The competitors will play about 27 holes today, beginning the fourth, with the finish on Monday.
“Anytime you’re in the lead, it’s got to be the best place to be,” said Wilson, who teamed up with Stenson in the Ryder Cup to beat a team of Mickelson and Anthony Kim in foursomes. “It (the Ryder Cup) proved to me and everyone else that I can do it when it matters.”
