Weather reduces Singapore Classic to 54 holes

SINGAPORE: The third edition of the ISPS Handa Singapore Classic has been reduced to 54 holes after bad weather caused almost 10 hours of play to be lost over the last three days, organisers said yesterday.

With thunderstorms and threats of bad lighting forcing play to be suspended twice, officials were left with no choice but to abandon play for the day.

“The tournament has been affected by several lengthy delays and suspensions due to inclement weather throughout the week,” said Fritz Katzengruber, Tournament Director, Asian Tour.

“As a result of the delays and the disruptions that we have suffered, we have taken the decision to reduce the tournament to 54 holes.”

Malaysia’s Shaaban Hussin only managed to finish his second round with a flawless five-under 65 and was among 12 players yet to tee off.

He will head into the final round with a one-shot lead over American David Lipsky, Japan’s Daisuke Kataoka and Thailand’s Thaworn Wiratchant who are a further shot back on matching 132s. — AFP
