American Dustin Johnson takes a three-shot lead into the final round of the weather-affected Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

Severe winds saw play abandoned on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and, with the tournament reduced to 54 holes, players completed two rounds on Monday.

Johnson shot 69 and 66 to lead Steve Stricker by three and Bubba Watson by four ahead of Tuesday's final round.

Englishman Ian Poulter is 10 shots off the lead after shooting 71 and 74.

Johnson has won the last two PGA tournaments that have been shortened to 54 holes.

"We had not played any golf, so I was ready to go, first round of the year, play 36 holes," Johnson, who is hoping for a seventh win on the PGA Tour, said.

"This course is a tough walk and it's really windy out there, but I'm in pretty good shape. I can handle it. I'm pretty pleased with my game right now."

Keegan Bradley and Brandt Snedeker are tied in fourth place on six-under par.
