KUALA LUMPUR: Mitsuhiko Hashizume of Japan opened with a flawless six-under 66 to take the clubhouse lead at the weather-disrupted PGM Northport Glenmarie Championship.
Local talent Arie Irawan, Thai duo Sattaya Supupramai and Piya Swangarunporn signed for matching 68s to share second place while India’s Shubhankar Sharma, Australian Darren Tan and Malaysians Nicholas Fung and S. Siva Chandhran were a further shot back on 69.
The first round of the Asian Development Tour (ADT) event was suspended at 3.15pm local time due to inclement weather before resuming two hours later. Play was forced to be suspended again at 7.15pm due to fading light.
A total of 35 players will return to the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club at 7.30am on Thursday to complete their first round.
Hashizume, who claimed his maiden ADT win in Malaysia last year, fired six birdies to march to the top of the leaderboard.
“My putting is good. It’s a nice course with narrow fairways and hard greens. It’s pretty difficult but I will try and do my best for the next three rounds. Hopefully, I can claim my second win this week,” said Hashizume.
