The third round of the Humana Challenge was postponed due to high winds that moved through the Palm Springs area on Saturday.  The area experienced sustained winds of 35mph and gusts to 50mph and all three courses experienced some sort of damage due to downed trees, hospitality tents being blown over, and even port-a-potties being upended.  At the time play was suspended, Michael Thompson was on the green of hole #16 on the La Quinta course (his seventh hole of the round) with a birdie putt upcoming.  He is currently 2 under par for the round and 8 under par for the tournament in a tie for 46th.

The third round is scheduled to resume at 7:30am PT and is expected to be wrapped up some time between 10:00am and noon PT.  Once the third round is concluded, the field will be cut to the top 70 golfers plus ties.  In order to speed up play and try and finish the fourth round on Sunday, all amateurs' play has also been concluded.
