Canadian Open delayed again
Lightning brought a premature end to day two of the Canadian Open before any of the players completed their second rounds.
The weather caused further chaos on day two of the RBC Canadian Open with heavy rain and lightning bring an early end to proceedings and preventing any players from completing their second rounds at the Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville.
Downpours had also resulted in lengthy delays on the opening day, with several players still needing to complete their first round.
That was possible in the early part of today, with Jerry Kelly one of the names to climb the leaderboard.
The American fired a seven-under-par 65 to put himself among the leading pack and then went straight back out onto the course to begin his second round.
A further five birdies in his second outing helped propel him to top of the standings, with Kelly sitting on 11 under with three holes remaining when play was suspended due to lightning.
Camilo Villegas, who scored 63 in his opening round, finished the day a shot behind Kelly. The Colombian also had three holes to play with three birdies and two bogeys on his card so far.
Joining Villegas on 10 under were Scotland’s Martin Laird, American Tim Herron and Nathan Green of Australia.
Laird built on his opening-round 65 with seven birdies and four bogeys in 17 completed holes.
Herron was five under in his second round after 16 holes, with five birdies and no dropped shots, while Green birdied the first four to add to his opening-round 68 before eventually being halted after 12 holes.
Overnight leader Kim Na was one of a several players yet to begin their second round, along with Scott Verplank, Retief Goosen and Luke Donald.
