Monday finish for Singapore Open
The Singapore Open has restarted after a 5½ hour thunderstorm delay, but will now have to go into a Monday finish.
The Barclays Singapore Open has restarted after a 5½ hour thunderstorm delay, but will now have to go into a Monday finish.
With the Australian overnight leader, Adam Scott, tied with England’s defending champion Ian Poulter and Korean Kang Kyung-nam at 14-under after just three holes, the field was called off the Serapong Course at the Sentosa Golf Club a little before midday when thunderstorms and rain rolled over the area.
USA Open champion Graeme McDowell, who could leapfrog Martin Kaymer at the top of the Race to Dubai standings with a Singapore win here, was just two shots off the pace.
Rain was still falling with a little more than an hour of light left, but organisers decided the course was playable and the conditions safe enough to continue play in order that the players may get in as many holes as possible before sunset.
“We will play until it’s dark and then we will resume tomorrow morning at 7:30 and we will continue until we have a winner,” said Chris Jordan, senior vice president of organisers World Sports Group.
“With it being so overcast the light may die on us quicker, but we will go until it’s impossible to play.”
Entrance to the public would be free of charge on Monday and provisions have been made for the necessary changes to the players accommodation and travel arrangements.
Jordan said the $6 million co-sanctioned Asian and European Tour event, which also suffered a four-hour delay on Thursday, has regularly been hit by bad weather, but Sunday’s storm was one of the worst in memory..
“This thing (storm) just sat on top of us and has not gone anywhere, so this is very unusual,” he explained.
On Monday’s weather, Jordan added: “It’s looking slightly better than today, but I’m not going to say I’m confident, I’m just hopeful.”
