Tiger Woods at Arnold Palmer Invitational 2013: Live Score, Results and Updates
Tiger Woods was going for his third victory of 2013 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. However, the golf gods were having none of it, as play was suspended after Tiger's second hole.
Play will resume Monday at 10 a.m. ET.
Prior to the stoppage of play, Woods birdied the second hole and moved to 12-under par for the tournament, three shots ahead of Rickie Fowler, Keegan Bradley and John Huh.
With a win, Woods will firmly establish himself as the favorite for the Masters and move into the top spot of the Official World Golf Rankings. A win would also mean an incredible eighth triumph at Bay Hill for Woods, tying Sam Snead for the most wins at a single tournament.
Tiger Woods was playing well. He played great recovery shot on the first hole and rolled in a birdie at the second before. Unfortunately, the birdie, which put him three-ahead of Rickie Fowler, John Huh and Keegan Bradley, was met with a stoppage of play, rather than a round of applause.
Due to storms in the area, the horn sounded at 2:03 p.m. After a power outage, the evacuation of the media tent and innumerable photos of Mother Nature's vengeance on Twitter, play was called for the day.
Players will resume their final rounds tomorrow at 10 a.m. ET.
Despite a shaky opening tee shot, Woods did nothing Sunday to dispel the idea that he's well on his way to his third victory of the year. He was one-under through two holes when play was suspended for the day.

A look at Tiger's PGA Tour finishes in 2013 thus far.
The spiky-haired one has made his prediction.
My guess is we don't play any more holes today. I think there is a lot of clear up to happen and it's still coming in sideways at 30MPH— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) March 24, 2013
Ian Poulter with his usual diplomatic tact. Definitely a question worth asking though, at this point.
They just had a gust reading at Orlando international airport of 86MPH. That's seriously bad. Why didn't we tee off from 8-10. Ooopppssss— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) March 24, 2013
Probably a fitting time to queue all the "Only Mother Nature can stop Tiger this week" jokes.
Well, the golf course will certainly be a bit softer when play resumes...
Here's a look at Rickie Fowler in his traditional Sunday orange. He's looking only half as much like an escaped convict as usual.
A bit of whining and some apocalyptic scenarios coming from the golf media on Twitter at the moment.
I've never been that nervous running out of media tent before. They let us back in but not sure why! Soaked. No power. High winds.— Beth Ann Baldry (@Golfweek_Baldry) March 24, 2013
For as much news as there has been about the Woods-Vonn couple this week, I'm more intrigued by the Palmer-Upton combination. As every moderately witty golf fan out there has said already: It's good to be the king.
Trying to stay optimistic, but...
Oh good... Tornado warning now in effect until 2:45pm ET...— Amanda Balionis (@Amanda_Balionis) March 24, 2013
A quick look at the leaders, while we're delayed:
Ricky in Tiger's head, Part IV: "Hey, I found this bent Nike 9-iron at your old house last night. It's got blood on it. You want it back?"— Steve Elling (@EllingYelling) March 24, 2013
"We don't know where this weather system is going or how long it will stick around," say the talking heads.
Elling doesn't make it 10 minutes into the weather delay before injecting some Vonn-related humor. His follow-up tweet is better/worse.
Tiger now 3 shots clear on a course he owns. Would have to crash like a Super G slalom skier to mess this one up. Topical humor for you.— Steve Elling (@EllingYelling) March 24, 2013
Now we get to listen to the wisdom of Frank Nobilo, as the announcers entertain the "Is Tiger back?" question.
Tiger with his first birdie of the day, smooths a 10 footer in on No. 2 to get to 12 under and 3 clear.— Brian Wacker (@pgatour_brianw) March 24, 2013
...and the horn sounds.
Great par-saving putt by Fowler at the first. Woods makes par as well, after a great approach shot from deep rough.
