More stormy weather in Spain - Andalucia 

Masters won't finish until Moday.

Sergio Garcia's bid to secure a hat-trick of Andalucía Masters victories will have to wait until Monday after more stormy weather forced the final round to be suspended on Sunday evening at Valderrama.

The defending champion was three strokes clear of nearest challenger Lee Westwood at the top of the Andalucía Valderrama Masters hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation leaderboard after seven holes of his final round when the hooter sounded at 1.49pm local time.
And with the threat of lightning keeping the players off the course for the rest of the day, it was announced the last full-field event of the European Tour season, which was reduced to 54 holes on Saturday, will run into a fifth day with play restarting at 9.10am local time.
Irishman Shane Lowry and Spaniard Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño were in a tie for third on six under, one shot behind Westwood, after making strong starts on Sunday.
A series of weather delays on the opening three days at Real Club Valderrama forced tournament organisers to reduce the event to three rounds on day three.

There was a further one-hour suspension shortly after play got under way on Sunday morning but things soon brightened up and the players returned to the course at 10.35am local time.
