Japanese TourSHIMAJIRI, Japan -- Hiroshi Goda held a one-stroke lead Friday after the second round of the Okinawa Open golf tournament was suspended due to darkness.
 
Goda, who started Friday's round two strokes back of overnight leader Musashi 'Jumbo' Ozaki, offset six bogeys with two birdies and an eagle at the Southern Links golf club for a 74 and a two-day total of 5-under-139.
 
South Korea's Ted Oh was a further stroke back after a 74.
 
Ozaki, who is looking for his first win in 27 events on the Japanese tour this season, slumped to a 7-over 79 after carding a course record 63 on the opening day.
 
The four-day, US$900,000 event is co-sanctioned by the Asian PGA and the Japan Golf Tour Organization.
