ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods is going to have to wait to try to reclaim No. 1 in the world.
Moments after Woods made a 10-foot birdie putt on the second hole, a vicious 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 1 1/2 inches on Bay Hill and formed small ponds in the fairways.
Woods is going after his eighth win at Bay Hill, which would return him to No. 1 in the world ranking for the first time since the last week of October in 2010. He hit all of six shots on Sunday, enough to build a three-shot lead over Rickie Fowler, Keegan Bradley, John Huh and Ken Duke.
CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) - Beatrtiz Recari sank an 18-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the second hole of a playoff with I.K. Kim to win the LPGA Tour's Kia Classic on Sunday.
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 her right fist in celebration just before the ball rolled in, then raised both arms in the air.
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.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento city officials reached a preliminary agreement Saturday for a new downtown arena with an investment group that hopes to keep the Kings from moving to Seattle.
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson first announced the deal on his Twitter account. A few hours later, the city released the details of the non-binding term sheet.
The group includes Silicon Valley software tycoon Vivek Ranadive, 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov and billionaire Ron Burkle. The City Council is planning to vote on the agreement Tuesday.
The city plans to contribute $258 million to the $447 million project, mostly by leasing out parking garages and land. The other $189 million will come from the investment group.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Lightning fired coach Guy Boucher on Sunday with the team in next to last place in the Eastern Conference and on its way to missing the playoffs for a second straight year.
Assistants Martin Raymond and Dan Lacroix share coaching duties Sunday night at Winnipeg.
Boucher's dismissal came one day after Tampa Bay fell behind by four goals in the first period of a 5-3 loss at Ottawa.
The Lightning are 13-17-1 and will likely miss the postseason again after reaching the conference finals during Boucher's first year. He was hired as the Lightning's seventh coach in June 2010.
Boucher's hiring was Hall of Famer Steve Yzerman's first major move as general manager.

Sarah Lefort, Marie-Philip Poulin and Jenelle Kohanchuk had goals for the Terriers (28-6-3), whose 10-game winning streak ended. They also lost in the title game in 2011.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Joe Weider, a legendary figure in bodybuilding who helped popularize the sport worldwide and played a key role in introducing a charismatic young weightlifter named Arnold Schwarzenegger to the world, died Saturday at his home in California. He was 93.
Weider popularized bodybuilding with such publications as Muscle & Fitness, Flex and Shape. Schwarzenegger himself is the executive editor of Muscle & Fitness and Flex.
He created one of bodybuilding's pre-eminent events, the Mr. Olympia competition, in 1965, adding to it the Ms. Olympia contest in 1980, the Fitness Olympia in 1995 and the Figure Olympia in 2003. He also relentlessly promoted Schwarzenegger, who won the Mr. Olympia title a then-record seven times, including in 1980 and every year from 1970 through 1975.
