ORLANDO, Fla. — Tiger Woods is going to have to wait one more day to try to reclaim the top spot in the world ranking.


Moments after Woods made a 10-foot birdie putt on the second hole, a thunderstorm packing gusts that topped out at 62 mph interrupted the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and wiped out play until Monday.


The storm dumped nearly 1½ inches on Bay Hill and formed small ponds in the fairways — there was even a fish in the middle of the 18th fairway. The wind toppled the TV tower behind the 10th green, which was a pile of metal poles, wood, mesh netting and had a stationary camera in the middle of it all.


About an hour after a tornado warning expired, officials said they would need time to clean up the course and let it drain. The final round was to resume at 10 a.m. Monday.


Kia Classic


CARLSBAD, Calif. — Beatrtiz Recari made an 18-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the second hole of a playoff with I.K. Kim to win the Kia Classic.


After Recari and Kim three-putted No. 18 both in regulation and on the first playoff hole, Recari ended it for her first victory since her rookie season of 2010. The 25-year-old Spaniard raised both arms in the air and later wiped away tears.


Recari, who brought a two-stroke lead into the day, had a chance to win in regulation. But, like Kim in the twosome ahead of her, she three-putted the par-4 18th. Recari closed with a 2-over 74 to match Kim at 9 under at Aviara. Kim shot a 71.


Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic


SAUCIER, Miss. — Michael Allen rallied to win the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic on Sunday for his fourth Champions Tour title, shooting a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Bernhard Langer.


The 54-year-old Allen started the day two shots behind the leaders, but made five birdies on the front nine to vault into the lead, navigating windy conditions at Fallen Oak.
