 Monday finish for US PGA Tour event: 

Castro's lead shrinks

By Kevin Casey

It took three days, but the US PGA Tour's Sanderson Farms Championship finally avoided delays. Yet the tournament still is headed toward a Monday finish.
Second-round action resumed Saturday morning at Country Club of Jackson (Miss.) and finished early in the afternoon, and the third round was suspended because of darkness at 4:48 p.m. CST. All 74 players who made the cut have yet to complete their third rounds, with the final group only six holes into their days. Tournament officials still plan for a 72-hole finish – play will resume at 7 a.m. Monday, and final-round groupings won't change as threesomes go off split tees – which means a potential 30-hole day for the leaders.
Roberto Castro, who held a four-shot lead after 36 holes, saw his margin drop to one on Saturday despite completing just six holes of play. 
 The 30-year-old bogeyed Nos. 3 and 4 to drop to 13 under. Meanwhile, D.J. Trajan posted a front-nine 34, and Michael Thompson was 2 under through seven to reach a 12-under total.
Seven players are tied for fourth at 11 under. Tyler Aldridge ( 5 under through 15) and William McGirt (4 under through 12) made the biggest third-round moves at that number. Martin Flores (5 under through 12) and Bronson Burgoon (4 under through 13) are lurking at 10 under.
Patrick Rodgers is 11 under through seven holes in his third round.
