SHENZHEN, China – Alexander Levy and Soo-min Lee opened with 6-under 66s and held the first-round lead when play was suspended Thursday at the Shenzhen International.
Levy, the 2014 China Open champion, started with a birdie on the 10th hole and turned in 31 after an eagle on the 17th and a birdie on the 18th. He opened his second nine with another birdie.
Lee had a bogey-free round containing six birdies in his sixth start on the European Tour.
A 45-minute suspension because of lightning in the afternoon resulted in 32 players having to return Friday morning to complete their first rounds.
