BRYAN, Texas -- UCLA's Tiffany Lua had a hole-in-one and topped the individual leaderboard with four holes left and the Bruins had a six-stroke lead Friday when third-round play in the NCAA Division I women's golf championship was suspended because of darkness.

Lua, who entered the round tied for third, aced the par-3 11th hole. She was 3 under for the day and 5 under overall on the Tradition Club course. Georgia's Marta Silva Zamora was tied for second at 2 under with LSU's Austin Ernst. Silva Zamora had a 72, and Ernst was 4 over for the round with four holes left.

UCLA had four holes left. Defending champion Purdue was second, also with four holes left.

The round was delayed 1 hour, 50 minutes because of lightning.
