Tiger Woods moved closer to a record-equalling 82nd PGA Tour victory on Sunday after taking a three-shot lead at the weather-delayed Zozo Championship in Japan.

The 15-time major champion, making his first appearance since knee surgery in August, extended his lead over Hideki Matsuyama after the third round.

Woods finished on 16 under par.

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy moved into sixth place, six shots off Woods, after the third round.

He had a nightmare 72 on the first day but a 65 on Saturday was followed by a superb 63, equalling the low round of the week, including six birdies and an eagle at the 18th.

Woods did not get off to the best start on Sunday, three-putting at the first, but he went on to card six birdies to stay in front.

Following the third round, all players then began their final rounds immediately in a bid to catch up on lost time because of Friday’s play being postponed.

Play will be completed on Monday.

Round two had to be held over to Saturday when six inches of rain fell, and the PGA then said fans could not attend Saturday’s play because of “safety concerns”.

It is the first PGA tournament to be staged in Japan.

Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal is struck with a coin from Rangers end

Hearts are examining footage to find the supporter who threw a coin at their goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal in their Scottish Cup win over Rangers.

The Czech was hit in the chest by a two-pence piece thrown from the Rangers section of the ground late in the second half with the hosts 1-0 up.

Footage also shows another coin narrowly missing the player as he attempts to take a goal kick.

Daniel Stendel’s side won the game to reach the semi-finals.

It comes a year after Zlamal was targeted with a coin by a Celtic fan at Tynecastle in a 2-1 win for the Glasgow club.

The 34-year-old was also punched in an Edinburgh derby by a Hibs fan, who was given a football banning order for a year and ordered to perform unpaid work.

Police Scotland have been contacted for comment.

Sophia Florsch is to be the first woman to race in the Formula 3 series

An all-female team including Sophia Florsch will compete at this year’s Le Mans 24-hour race.

June’s race will take place less than two years after German Formula 3 driver Florsch, 19, survived a huge 170mph crash at the Macau GP, after which she needed surgery on a fractured spine.

She will line up with Alfa Romeo F1 test/development driver Tatiana Calderon and Briton Katherine Legge.

They will drive in the LMP2 category for Richard Mille’s Racing Oreca team.

Florsch said on social media: “Yes! I am racing this high class superduper motorsport event. Ready to rumble girls.”

They all currently compete in the Oreca car in the European Le Mans Series of endurance racing.

The Le Mans 24-hour race is one of motorsport’s biggest events, which sees many top drivers competing.
