STORY: South Korean Song Young-han soared to the Singapore Open lead after a sparkling eight-under-par 63 on Friday (January 29) as world number one Jordan Spieth had his second round charge halted by more inclement weather.

The 22-year-old American, the headline act of the Japan Golf Tour and Asian Tour’s season opening event, was level par after six holes of his round on Friday when rain then lightning warnings forced the players from the Sentosa Golf Course.

The double major winner’s four-under 24 hole total left him tied sixth, five behind the impressive Song (133) who is seeking the first tour title of his career.

Spieth will resume on Saturday (January 30) with a testing birdie putt after being caught out by the changing weather on the seventh.

South Korean Song had no such problems as he enjoyed a birdie bonanza on a cooler and calmer morning in the Southeast Asian citystate.

The 24-year-old picked up seven birdies and an eagle in his round to put him two clear of Japan’s Shintaro Kobayashi (69) and South Korean world number 26 An Byeong-hun, who was three-under through seven holes of his second round when play was stopped.

Two shots further back in fourth place on five-under were Hideto Tanihara of Japan who had completed seven holes and Keith Horne of South Africa who had played just two holes before play was suspended.

Song will have plenty of opportunity to rest with a second weather curtailed day leaving organisers a tricky task to complete all four rounds by Sunday (January 31).

Seventy-eight players will resume their second rounds at 07:30 a.m. on Saturday (2330GMT on Friday).
