ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods is going to have to wait one more day to try to reclaim No. 1 in the world.

A vicious thunderstorm packing 60 mph wind and heavy rain interrupted the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday. With small ponds in the course — and even a fish in the middle of the 18th fairway — the round was postponed until Monday.

Woods and Rickie Fowler in the final group had played only two holes. Woods made birdie on No. 2 and had a three-shot lead.

It's the second time this year Woods will try to win on a Monday. Torrey Pines was pushed back one day because of fog.

Lawn chairs lining the 18th fairway were toppled over, and a TV tower crashed down behind the 10th green.
