SINGAPORE, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Thailand's Chapchai Narat held a two-stroke lead when Saturday's third round at the Asian Tour's Singapore Open golf tournament was called because of darkness.

Narat was about to play the 13th hole when play was suspended a third straight day at the weather-plagued, $5 million event.

The 25-year-old Bangkok native used three birdies and an eagle to compile a total of nine-under-par through the 12 holes he was able to play.

England's Simon Dyson, first-round leader Lam Chih Bing, a local pro from Singapore, and Denmark's Thomas Bjorn were tied for second at 7-under.

World No. 5 Padraig Harrington of Northern Ireland, the winner at this season's British Open and the PGA Championship, held the clubhouse lead at 5-under after shooting 5-under 66 Saturday.

Elsewhere, world No. 3 Phil Mickelson was 4-under through 14, South Africa's Ernie Els 1-over through 11, Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland was 1-under through 11, and India's Jeev Milkha Singh was 4-under through 14 holes.
