Sicilian Open finish delayed to Monday


2009 European TourRAGUSA, Sicily – France’s Raphael Jacquelin held a slim one-shot lead over England’s Anthony Wall when final-round play at the inaugural Sicilian Open was suspended due to darkness Sunday.

A lightning storm before the leaders teed off at the Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa slowed down the day’s proceedings and the year’s first European Tour event on European soil will be completed Monday.

Seeking his first tour title since 2007, Jacquelin bogeyed his final hole of the day – the par-5 12th – and stood at 11-under.

Wall birdied the 12th and is at 10-under, with Spain’s Jose Manuel Lara one shot further back through 15 holes.

Sweden’s Joel Sjoholm is fourth at 7-under with the clubhouse lead following a 2-under 69.
