by Mark Mayer | If Tiger Woods is to win his sixth straight PGA Tour event today in rainy Miami and eighth in a row worldwide, he’ll need overtime. Woods completed just 11 holes Saturday before torrential rain forced postponement of play. The third round was to be finished this morning at Doral Golf Resort and Spa, followed by final round play.

Geoff Ogilvy led Woods by three shots at 14-under par in the WGC-CA Championship at the famed Blue Monster. Adam Scott, a former UNLV golfer, was just one behind Ogilvy. Woods and Vijay Singh, already 8-under on his round, were tied for third at -11. Singh had a 7˝-foot birdie putt on 17 when play resumed.

The Las Vegas Hilton listed Woods a 2-3 favorite at Doral and in a prop bet was -150 to beat the field. Ogilvy went off at 40-1, with Scott at 30-1 and Singh 20-1. Tiger’s next tournament start figures to be The Masters on April 10-13 in Augusta, Georgia. Caesars Palace lists Woods at even money to win golf’s first Grand Slam event of the season.
