World number one Jordan Spieth in action...

Jordan Spieth was two shots behind leader Song Young-han when bad weather ensured the Singapore Open will be concluded on Monday. Inclement weather has disrupted the Asian Tour event at the Serapong Course this week and rain affected what was due to be the final day of the tournament before a lightning warning suspended play.

World number one Spieth was about to attempt a short putt for a birdie which would have put him just one shot off the lead when the horn sounded.

The two-time major winner returned in the morning to finish his third round with a bogey and a birdie which saw him sign for 70. Five birdies and just one bogey through 17 holes of his final round moved the Texan to 10 under for the tournament, with a great chance of picking up another shot at the last on Monday.

Song carded a 69 in his third round and was one under after 15 when play was brought to a halt yet again, while Liang Wen-chong made a 69 in his final round to finish on 10 under

Miguel Tabuena, Hideto Tanihara and Shintaro Kobayashi are nine under and will also return to the course at 7.30am local time on Monday to finish their final rounds.
