Rain halts play in Singapore

Simon Dyson and Chapchai Nirat share the lead midway through the second round at a weather-affected Singapore Open, with play suspended on Friday with half of the field yet to commence their second set of 18 holes. Englishman Dyson hit four under after 13 holes in his second round to move to six under overall, with Thailand&aposs Nirat on the same score after going even par through nine holes before thunderstorms halted play. Nirat had earlier in the day completed his opening round at six under after inclement weather had also prevented much of the field from completing their rounds on Thursday. Thomas Bjorn, who led proceedings at five under par overnight, is yet to tee off in his second round at the Sentosa Golf Club. The Dane is in a tie for third with Italian pair Matteo Manassero and Francesco Molinari, both of whom are yet to complete their second rounds. After shooting one over in his opening round, South African George Coetzee hit five under through eight holes on Friday to move into a tie for sixth with Chris Wood, Simon Khan, Chinnarat Phadungsil and Pablo Martin, all of whom are yet to commence their second rounds. Richard Green, also yet to start his second 18, remains the highest placed Australian at two under, with Marcus Fraser and Andrew Dodt a further stroke back. World number six Adam Scott is also yet to commence his second round and sits at even par after an opening-day 71.
