Garcia falls four shots out of lead in Taiheiyo Masters

GOTEMBA, Japan -- Sergio Garcia fell out of the lead at the
Taiheiyo Masters on Saturday, dropping four strokes back after 13
holes before darkness forced the suspension of the third round.

Garcia, who shared the overnight lead with Japanese players
Katsumasa Miyamoto and Daisuke Maruyama, had bogeys on Nos. 3 and 9
at the Gotemba Course and was tied for sixth on the 14th hole when
play was stopped.

Makoto Inoue of Japan was on top of the leaderboard at 11 under,
including a 68 after 16 holes on the day. Miyamoto was a stroke
back with a 1-under par through 13 holes, and Mamo Osanai was another
shot behind with a 1-under through 15.

Garcia's Ryder Cup teammate Darren Clarke, who has won the title
the last two years, was in 39th place after finishing the round
with a 73.

The start of Saturday's round was delayed due to rain.
