The tournament team’s hands were forced with tees, fairways, greens, and bunkers all flooding late in the piece, meaning golfers who haven’t finished round two needing to come back at 7.30 tomorrow morning to finish their rounds.

Woonchul Na holds the top spot on the leaderboard at eight under par with consecutive rounds of 66, to lead by one over Kazuma Kobori and Mark Hutson who have also finished their opening two rounds. Australia’s Christopher Fan also sits on seven-under, but still has three holes to play to complete round two.

Na was one of the lucky ones who teed off this morning at 8.10 off the first.

He opened with five straight pars before clicking into gear at six, where he made four straight birdies to turn in four under. He made it five on the trot with a birdie at ten, and played solidly coming home, dropping just the one shot at the par 4 15th.

His round was also disrupted with play being suspended for an hour and 15 minutes this morning just after he teed off. He had another break at midday with conditions becoming unplayable for half an hour just after lunch time.

The afternoon field wore the brunt of the conditions, with tournament staff squeegeeing a handful of greens so players could putt out.

Unfortunately, the weather won, with play being called just after 5pm.

Fan and Stephen Heyes have the rounds of the afternoon field at four-under, both with three holes to play.

Overnight leader Rhys Thomas is three over for round two with a handful of holes to play. He currently sits at five under par.

Players will finish round two first thing tomorrow morning, with round three likely to get underway at 10 o’clock.
