Inclement weather forced players off the course in the second round of the Players Championship in Florida, and darkness suspended play further.

The rest of the round will be played tomorrow morning.

Overnight leader Jason Day now holds an outright lead.

The Australian world number one is five-under through 14 holes to be fourteen-under overall, three shots clear of his nearest challenger, Irishman Shane Lowry.

Rory McIlroy sits just outside the top ten, in a tie for 12th overall at eight-under, after an eight-under par round of 64.

Kiwi Danny Lee has slipped down the leaderboard, one-under with one hole to play and in a tie for 22nd, six-under overall.
