BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) -- Alex Cejka won the Web.com Tour's season-opening Colombia Championship on Sunday, breaking the course record with an 8-under 63 in the completion of the third round before rain washed out play.

The 43-year-old Czech-born German played the final 16 holes of the third round Sunday morning at water-logged Bogota Country Club, birdieing four of the last five holes to reach 14-under 199.

Cejka was halfway through the final round when play was suspended and the round wiped out. At the time, he had a one-stroke lead over Andrew Putnam.

Putnam ended up three strokes back after a third-round 68. Mexico's Carlos Ortiz was third at 10 under after a 67, and Bill Lunde followed at 9 under after a 70.
