Heavy rain forced the third round of the Stanbic Zambia Open to be abandoned at the Lusaka Golf Club on Saturday, compelling organisers to reduce the tournament to 54-holes.

Little more than three hours play was possible and not one match completed 18 holes.

The leaders were unable to tee off as the first suspension early on Saturday morning delayed the round by two hours and 15 minutes, and then another downpour later in the day eventually prevented any further play as the course was completely saturated.

The third and final round will resume at 10.30 local time on Sunday morning. Scotland's Scott Drummond, Travis Fraser from Zimbabwe, South African Desvonde Botes and Sebastian Fernandez from Argentina will begin the final round in a four-way tie for the lead on nine-under par 137, with Zambian professional Oliver Seno and Bobby Lincoln from South Africa their nearest challengers on seven-under 139.

The last time this event was contested over 54 holes was in 1989 when Craig Maltman was the champion.
