Tiger Woods had a two-shot lead at the NEC Invitational in Akron, Ohio, when storms approached and play was stopped for three hours. He returned to hit three shots -- none of them good -- and fell into a tie for the lead yesterday when the third round was suspended.
After spending 10 hours during an on-again, off-again day at Firestone, Woods was tied with Kenny Perry at 7 under with three holes he'll have to finish this morning.

Woods returned after the first delay to face a delicate flop shot from left of the par-3 15th green. He hit it 10 feet past the hole, and lipped out the par putt. He followed with a drive into rough.
