JORDAN SPIETH WILL have just one job when he returns to the Singapore Open on Monday morning — to take care of the five-foot birdie putt that could potentially win him the tournament.

Spieth was on the 18th green and about to finish his round on Sunday when the horn sounded for a weather warning. The threat of lightning persisted throughout the afternoon and, after hanging around for a few hours, the world number one was forced to call it a day.

A birdie at the last would take Spieth to 11-under-par and give him the outright lead in the clubhouse, one shot clear of the finished Wen-Chong Liang.

If he makes the putt when play resumes on Monday (11.30pm Sunday Irish time), Spieth will then have to wait for Younghan Song to finish the final two-and-a-bit holes of his own round.

Song led on 12-under through 15 holes when the horn sounded, but faces a tricky 12-foot putt to save par on the 16th.
