SINGAPORE – James Morrison of England carded a 3-under 68 to take the clubhouse lead by two shots after an incomplete second round of the Singapore Open on Friday.
Play was delayed for nearly three hours because of the threat of lightning from a rain storm, and eventually the round was suspended because of darkness with 69 players still to finish.
Morrison was at 12 under overall, two ahead of Juvic Pagunsan (66) of the Philippines.
“I didn’t play as well today as I did yesterday, but I managed to get it round and I am pretty happy with that,” Morrison said.
Phil Mickelson, who was announced Thursday at the latest member in the World Golf Hall of Fame, was 2 under through 12 holes. He was 2 under for the tournament, moving from T-109 to T-70, and right on the projected cut line.
Graeme McDowell, who was 3 under after a par 71, said his stomach flu hurt his play.
“I felt very lethargic this morning and played the front nine like a blind man,” McDowell said. “I still had stomach cramps on the back nine and am still not great.”
