CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (REUTERS) - American Max Homa held a one-stroke in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship when play resumed after an hour and 11 minute weather delay at Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday (May 4).

A passing storm forced the delay with more rain scheduled for later Saturday and on Sunday.

Homa, a former US collegiate champion seeking his first PGA Tour win, was at 12 under through nine holes when play resumed at 4.48pm local time (4.48am on Sunday, Singapore time).

Overnight leader Jason Dufner was a stroke back with Pat Perez and Joel Dahmen tied at nine-under and Englishman Justin Rose at eight-under.

Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy, celebrating his 30th birthday, was tied for sixth at seven-under with Englishman Paul Casey and American Patrick Reed.

McIlroy had only one birdie through nine holes as he missed several putting opportunities.
