Singapore – An approaching thunderstorm brought the Barclays Singapore Open to a halt for the second time in just a few hours on Friday.

Players had only been back on the course for a few minutes when the hooter sounded again at 3:50 pm (0750 GMT), warning them to get inside due to the threat of lightning.

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. – Sapa-AFP
