Rain wrecks day two in Zimbabwe
Friday’s 2nd round of the Africom Zimbabwe Open was suspended at 13h19 when persistent rain made play impossible.
Friday’s second round of the Africom Zimbabwe Open was suspended at 13h19 when persistent heavy rain waterlogged the Royal Harare course and made further play impossible.
Worst still, the weather forecast has predicted more rain for the rest of the weekend and because the entire field needs to complete 36 holes of golf in order for a result to be obtained, the organisers who hoping to get the second round completed morning early on Saturday.
Overnight leader Theunis Spangenberg was one of the lucky few able to complete his round – and he did so in fine style, signing for a five-under par 67 and a 13-under par 36-hole total of 131.
Darryn Lloyd is alone in second on 11-under par with Deane Pappas a further shot behind.
Defending champion Jbè Kruger has yet to tee off and was in fact standing on the first tee when play was suspended.
