Poor Tiger Woods, all dressed up in red and nowhere to go Sunday.

Weather kept him from taking a crack at bringing home a win in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, so he’ll try again today to get his 77th PGA title and third of the year. Oh, and a victory would put him back atop the world golf rankings, bumping Rory McIlroy, for the first time since October 2010, the month before Woods’s golf game and personal life came apart.

Woods, who tees off at 10 a.m. and is at 12-under par, has a three-stroke lead over Keegan Bradley, Ken Duke, Rickie Fowler and John Huh.

“At least we got a little activity in … so we’re not completely stagnant,” said Woods, who won the Farmers Insurance Open on a Monday in January. “We’ve dealt with this before.”

Woods completed two holes of play before storms struck Orlando and play was suspended at about 2 p.m. Forty-three players still have to finish, but toppling Woods from the lead will be daunting. He is 41-2 in his career when leading outright after 54 holes.
