Deluge delays Woods

Woods ... chasing Sam Snead's record

TIGER WOODS will have to wait another day for what seems an imminent return to the top of the world golfing rankings.

Woods held a three stroke lead at the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational when storms halted play after he had completed just two holes of the final round.

With the course flooded and wind damage to a television tower US PGA Tour officials cancelled play till Tuesday morning Australian Time (10am US).

Woods needs to win the event to overtake Rory McIlroy as world No.1. and is also shooting to win the championship for a record equalling eight time.

The 37 year old was at 12-under when play was abandoned for the day at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida.

Chasing three strokes back were a group of four fellow Americans, Keegan Bradley, Ken Duke, John Huh and Rickie Fowler.

John Senden was doing the best of the Aussies, a total of 4-under through 10 holes while Jason Day was on even through nine.
