Sweden's David Lingmerth takes a surprise two-shot lead after a stunted day three at the Players Championship.

Sweden's David Lingmerth leads the way at the Players Championship after a stunted third day at TPC Sawgrass in Florida.

Lingmerth, who is one of many players yet to finish his third round because of the threat of lightning, lies on 12-under-par with just a hole to play in his third round, two clear of the trio of Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods.

Stenson has two left to play on Sunday morning while Garcia and Woods, who were the last pair out on Saturday, still have four holes to alter the leaderboard ahead of the final round at golf's 'fifth Major'.

Lee Westwood (-6), who had not made a bogey in the first two rounds, made two double bogeys early on but managed to get back to three-over for the day after 15 holes, while world number two Rory McIlroy (-5) could only manage a one-over round of 73.
