LA QUINTA, CALIF. (AP) - The Humana Challenge suspended play midway through the third round Saturday after high winds caused damage on all three courses.

The tournament will resume third-round play Sunday morning with Mark Wilson holding a three-stroke lead over Ben Crane.

Officials believe they can finish the four-round event Sunday.

Most of the golfers were past the turn in the third round when wind gusts of 35 mph blew balls off the greens, toppled a large scoreboard and wrecked an awning in the fan area.

The pro-am tournament reported no injuries, but called an early halt out of caution Saturday.

Wilson is at 21 under for the tournament after going 5 under through 15 holes in the third round. Zach Johnson moved within four strokes of the lead, 6 under through 13 holes.
