Daniel Chopra tied for lead at Singapore Open


2009 European Tour

SINGAPORE – Daniel Chopra shot a 6-under 65 Friday to move into a three-way tie with Ian Poulter and Chan Yih-shin at the rain-plagued Singapore Open.

Chopra closed his second round at 7 under, while both Poulter and Chan failed to finish the round because of darkness. Poulter made it through three holes and Chan seven before the suspension.

More than half the field was still on the course when play was halted after lightning caused delays for the second straight day.

Phil Mickelson, who shot an opening 69, was 1 under after completing four holes of the second round. Padraig Harrington (69) was 1 over and Geoff Ogilvy (74) 2 over.
