VIRGINIA WATER England (Reuters) - Play finally got underway at 1005 local time after heavy overnight rain caused a three-hour delay in the BMW PGA Championship third round at Wentworth on Saturday.

Denmark's Thomas Bjorn and Shane Lowry of Ireland, who share the lead on 10-under-par, are due to tee-off in a threeball with Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello (-6) at 1415.

Former world number ones Rory McIlroy (-5) and Luke Donald (-6) and Swede Jonas Blixt (-5), playing in the penultimate match, start at 1405.
