Park's ball moved on the fourth green from 40 mph gusts at St. Andrews, and the third round was suspended a short time later. Officials waited nearly six hours before deciding not to resume the third round until 6:15 a.m. Sunday. The hope would be to get 72 holes in by Sunday evening.

Of the nine players who finished the third round, the best score was a 75.

Park, going after a record fourth professional major in the same year, was 1 under through four holes.

St. Andrews is one of the most difficult links courses in Britain when the wind is strong.
