KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- A thunderstorm suspended play at the Malaysian Open for the second straight day, with Louis Oosthuizen holding on to a one-shot lead halfway through his third round.

The Masters runner-up birdied the 10th hole to move to 13 under at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club before play was stopped for the day.

Stephen Gallacher of Scotland was a shot behind after completing 11 holes, while Pablo Larrazabal of Spain was the clubhouse leader at 7-under 209 after shooting a 67. Most of the top 30 players were still on the course when play was halted.

Oosthuizen found sand off the tee at the first three holes, but managed to save par on every occasion. He mixed four birdies with a bogey on the sixth and was 3 under for his round.
