Jason Day got his third top five finish of the US PGA Tour season at the Pebble Beach Pro Am in California.
The day ended with a four-under-par 68, which was not enough to beat runaway leader Phil Mickelson, but got him fourth when it forced another suspension.
A handful of players will be back tomorrow to solve the problem, with veteran Mickelson with three shots from American Scott Stallings and the English Paul Casey.
Day, the world number 12, finished fifth in the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges and the Farmers Insurance Open on tour this season, and shows a strong return to form after a quiet finish until 2018.
"To be honest, I thought if I could step in with a 68 or 67 today this would be possible, but unfortunately the guys in the front are playing pretty good golf here, especially Phil, & # 39; & # 39; Day said. "So the boys, it looks like he's been doing it for a long time, and he's been doing it for a while, and he's still winning, which is clear they still have holes, but if he's way he plays now, he should be able to get it done easily. "
The day ends in the international ranking for the Presidents Cup, where he will probably lead the attack on the Americans this year in Royal Melbourne.
"I mean, that's one thing you want to be able to do is represent Team International and represent your country especially at home," he said. "And Royal Melbourne will again be a phenomenal joint and we will have a lot of fun. We will have a tough American team to play against, but of course I think that if I can just continue to commit and keep working hard, that team does not have to worry I now have to concentrate on playing well and hopefully it will take care of the rest. "
It was a decent week for the Australians on the iconic Pebble Beach, with the Curtis Luck of Perth also in the top 30.
