Storms halt Singapore golf for second day

10:13 am on 10 November 2012

Just six hours of golf were possible and only half the field were able to start their second rounds, as thunderstorms ended play at the Singapore Open yesterday.

England's Simon Dyson and Chapchai Nirat of Thailand are the joint leaders at six-under-par 65 mid-way through round two, while world number one Rory McIlroy is at one under par for the tournament.

McIlroy admitted he was struggling with a cold after completing his rain-interrupted first round five strokes off the pace in the morning.

The Northern Irishman, who can wrap up the European money title at the par-71 Sentosa Golf Club, finished his last 10 holes at one-under-par 70.

McIlroy is bidding to become just the second man to win the PGA and European Tour money titles in the same season, after Luke Donald achieved the feat last year.
