Lawrence, Cañizares lead at weather-hit European Masters

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Thriston Lawrence and Alejandro Cañizares stayed in a share of the lead at 13 under on a weather-affected day at the European Masters where neither could complete their second round on Friday.

Lawrence and Cañizares were both shooting 5 under for the day after 14 and 13 holes, respectively, when play ended around 8 p.m. local time in darkness in the Swiss Alps. Neither started their round when play was suspended soon after 1 p.m. for about three hours due to approaching electric storms.

The second round was due to resume on Saturday at 7:40 a.m. with some players still having nine holes to complete.

Back-to-back rounds of 65 left Nacho Elvira and Marcel Siem as clubhouse leaders on 10-under 130.

Three players were a shot further back on 9 under. Scott Jamieson (67) and Richard Mansell (64) completed their rounds while Louis De Jager was 3 under for the day with six holes left to play.

Defending champion Rasmus Højgaard was six shots off the lead at 2 under after 14 holes of his second round.
