Tiger in contention at Congressional

11:40 am on 2 July 2012

Zimbabwe's Brendon de Jonge seized a one-stroke lead by posting his second consecutive two-under 69 on Saturday in the third round of the storm-hit US PGA AT&T National.

De Jonge birdied three holes but hardly anyone witnessed it in person at the Congressional Country Club after spectators were told to stay away because of a severe storm that struck the area overnight.

De Jonge said playing without spectators seemed odd at the start but then once they got going it was all about managing your golf game.

Tiger Woods carded a four-under 67 to climb into a share of second place at six under.

He is tied with first-round leader Bo Van Pelt and South Korea's Noh Seung-yul .
