New Orleans:

Halfway leader Arjun Atwal of India slipped to the third position in the $5.5 million Zurich Classic of New Orleans when third-round play was suspended due to darkness on Saturday. Atwal, who began the day with a stroke advantage over the field, slipped down to third after a double-bogey on the par-five seventh left him on one-over through 10 and two adrift of leader Chris DiMarco at 10-under. Bidding to become the first golfer from India to win a PGA Tour event, Atwal had been cruising along until disaster struck on the seventh. After sending his tee shot into the deep rough, the 32-year-old could only manage a double-bogey, while US Masters runner-up DiMarco drained a birdie for a three-stroke swing in his favour.
