Singapore: Indian golfers SSP Chowrasia and Anirban Lahiri completed their opening round and improved their positions before rain left them stranded midway through the second round at the Barclay’s Singapore Open on day.
Weather played spoilsport once again as more than half the field was yet to begin their second round. In fact, none of the players who played in the first session on Thursday got any action on Friday.
India’s best placed players on the first day, Himmat Rai and Jyoti Randhawa, both two-under in first round, were left cooling their heels in the clubhouse as were Shiv Kapur and Gaganjeet Bhullar.
Both Chowrasia and Lahiri, who got to play a substantial bit of the second round, were two-under for the tournament with five and nine holes to play respectively.
Simon Dyson, a former Asian Tour Order of Merit winner, and Thai Chapchai Nirat, who has practised to be a monk in the past, shared the clubhouse lead at six-under. (PTI)
