England’s up and coming James Morrison had moved into a two-stroke lead when round two of the Barclay’s Singapore Open was suspended by electrical storm this morning
Morrison, a winner this year at the Maedeira Island Open, was at 11-under par after 14 holes on the tougher Serapong course at Sentosa Golf Club, having posted four birdies as against two bogies.
In Thursday’s first round, on the easier Tanjong course, he had shot a 10-birdie, one bogey 62.
Electrical storms in the Sentosa Golf Club area forced the players off the course at 1154 local time today (Friday) with the former Madeira Islands Open winner two under for the day on the tougher Serapong Course.
He had began the day with a bogey five but regained the shot at the seventh.
A further birdie and bogey followed but he picked up shots at the 13th and 14th to move clear of overnight co-leader Edoardo Molinari, who hade not yet teed off
Juvic Pagunsan joined the Italian in second place after four birdies on the Serapong course lifted him to nine under par, only for a dropped shot at the 13th to set him back just as play was suspended.
Pagunsun was level in third place with Korea’s Y E Yang, who like Molinari had his tee time pushed back by two hours and 45 minutes, with play scheduled to resume at 14.40 localo time.
