AGADIR, Morocco, March 24 (UPI) -- Damien McGrane held a one-stroke lead as third-round play was suspended Saturday at the Trophee Hassan golf tournament in Morocco.

McGrane finished with a birdie on the 10th hole as darkness fell, putting him at 1-under for the round and 12-under for the event.

That was good enough for a one-shot advantage over Italian teenager Matteo Manassero and Jose Manuel Lara of Spain at minus-11.

A long wind delay Friday put the tourney off-schedule. Several golfers finished their third rounds Saturday but most did not.

A cut was made after the second round was completed early in the day's action.

Michael Hoey did complete his third round Saturday, firing a 7-under 65, and was the clubhouse leader at 10-under 206.
