PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif., Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Saturday's play at the PGA Nissan Open suspended as rain continued.

Play was suspended on Friday following a long weather delay and tournament officials hoped to resume action Saturday morning.

Now, tournament officials hope to have the players back to the course at 10:30 a.m. EST on Sunday.

"If we can play tomorrow and play the third round and maybe finish the fourth round on Monday, that's our goal," said Tournament Director Mark Russell. "We're taking it one step at a time."

Bad weather has been a problem since the opening round and the forecast calls for more rain over the next two days.

Chad Campbell completed his second round on Friday and has the lead in the clubhouse at nine-under 133. Australian Robert Allenby also finished 36 holes and is at six-under 136.

Tiger Woods is four shots off the lead at five-under through four holes of the second round.
