Thompson maintains lead heading into Bahamas finale

Related Topics: The Bahamas, Par (score)

Nicholas Thompson remained the only player under par when third-round play was suspended because of darkness at the wind-swept Bahamas Great Exuma Classic.

According to official scoring, Thompson played the first eight holes of his third round in even par, and at 2 under he holds a two-shot lead over Canadian Corey Conners. Thompson, the brother of LPGA star Lexi Thompson, is in search of his first Tour win since the 2007 HSBC New Zealand PGA Championship.

Conners was a runner-up at the 2014 U.S. Amateur, and he appeared an unlikely contender after an opening-round 79.
