MIAMI, March 23 (UPI) -- The WGC-CA Championship was halted by darkness in the final round Sunday with Geoff Ogilvy leading by two shots and Tiger Woods's win streak in jeopardy.

The event was headed for a Monday finish on the Blue Monster course at the Doral Resort in Florida.

Ogilvy was 17-under-par halfway through the final 18 holes. Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk were the closest challengers at 15-under. Woods, who has won five straight PGA events, was five shots back, tied for eighth, through 11 holes.

Rain and lightning delays plagued the tournament through the weekend. A stoppage in the final round lasted nearly three hours, delaying play until the horn sounded to end play because of darkness.

"It's a bit fatiguing going out, warming up, getting in the van, driving all the way out, coming all the way back, coming in, sitting around," Ogilvy said.

Along with his five straight wins on the tour, dating back to last fall, Woods has won seven in a row overall, including the Dubai Desert Classic and the unofficial Target World Challenge.
