SEOUL, South Korea (AP): Miguel Angel Jimenez and Brett Rumford shared the lead at 10 under Saturday before bad weather forced the suspension of the third round at the Ballantine's Championship.

Jimenez made an ideal start to the day with birdies at the first and second holes. The Spaniard then birdied No. 8 from 15 feet before play was abandoned.

Rumford, the overnight leader from Australia, made par on his first six holes before bogeying No. 7. He recovered with a birdie on the next hole to regain a share of the lead.

Rhys Davies is next at 8 under with seven holes remaining, while Lee Westwood is tied for 11th at 6 under through 12 holes.

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Adventurous amateur golfers from seven countries have converged on North Korea, looking to add an exotic new location to their destination lists.

Participants from Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, South Africa and the United Kingdom teed off Friday at an 18-hole course near the capital, Pyongyang, that usually caters to diplomats from foreign embassies.

Tournament organizer Dylan Harris told Associated Press Television that the tournament appeals to golfers who like to play on exclusive courses and travel the world.

The 15 players say they want to push back the frontiers of international golf and be able to claim that they've played in North Korea.
