England's Ian Poulter lost a three-shot advantage in two holes but still has a share of the lead with Paul Casey going into the final holes of the rain-delayed Honda Classic in Florida.

He had a bogey-free third round to take a three-shot lead over Irishman Padraig Harrington and Patrick Reed of the US.

But the 39-year-old had a double bogey at the fifth in his final round, then sent his next tee shot into the water.

The round resumes on Monday after it was ended by darkness on Sunday.

Saturday's third round at Palm Beach Gardens was washed out because of bad weather, meaning that after the third round ended, players went straight out to play as much of their final rounds as they could.

Reed had the lead with a long birdie at the fifth but gave it back with a bogey on the seventh, while Casey went out in 31 to join his compatriot Poulter at the top of the leaderboard.
