(Reuters) - American Max Homa held a one-stroke lead in the third round when a passing storm forced a weather delay at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday.

The former U.S. collegiate champion was at 12 under through nine holes when play was halted at 3:37 p.m. local time (1937 GMT)

Overnight leader Jason Dufner was a stroke back.

Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy, celebrating his 30th birthday, was tied for sixth at seven-under at the turn.
