Players rushed off course as storm siren sounds

A looming storm over Brisbane forced a sudden halt to the Australian PGA Championship at Royal Queensland.

The final groupings were nearing the turn on day four when a siren was heard ringing out around the course.

The alarm sounded, luckily, only seconds after Jason Scrivener had teed off, although his ball still trickled into a bunker behind the green.

All players were forced to vacate the course immediately, and stewards did their best to usher fans away to safety as well.

Scrivener is making a charge at world No.3 golfer Cameron Smith in what is building as a mouthwatering finish to the tournament.

Smith held a three-shot lead at the end of day three but that was whittled down to one shot after the front nine on Sunday.

Young Aussie star Min Woo Lee began his round with two straight birdies to make a momentary challenge, but has since cooled off.
