Highlights from round two of the Omega European Masters which saw Thirston Lawrence and Alejandro Canizares share the lead with 13 under.
Spaniard Alejandro Canizares and South African Thriston Lawrence continue to share the lead at the Omega European Masters.
Almost three hours of play were lost due to a thunderstorm in Crans-sur-Sierre, meaning the second round was not completed on time and will resume at 7.40am on Saturday.
Canizares and Lawrence, who had shared the lead after the opening rounds of 62, had reached 13 under par after 13 and 14 holes respectively before play was halted due to darkness.
Alejandro Canizares produced an eagle on 15 at the Omega European Masters to take the lead on day two.
Spaniard Nacho Elvira and Germany’s Marcel Siem hold the club lead with under 10 after matching rounds of 65, with England’s Richard Mansell and Scotland’s Scott Jamieson with nine under.
Siem, who had started from the 10th and was on his penultimate hole when play was suspended, said: “It wasn’t easy after the delay, but I was very happy to have made the short putt for par (eighth) to get the momentum going.
“If you bogey nine in this weather isn’t easy either, so I’m really happy to finish with a birdie and be 10 under.”
Mansell also struggled with the backlog but posted a stunning 64 to continue his run in good form.
“I had a nice round, had to come back and got a 30ft up the hill (in fourth), left five feet down and missed it,” said Mansel. “It was the only bogey of the day, which was frustrating.

“We got back to it straight away, happy to shoot 64 and in a good position heading into the weekend. It’s been seven weeks in a row for me and I probably should have taken a week off, but this is my first times here and I didn’t want to miss it.I’ve heard amazing things about Crans and it absolutely lives up to that.
Matt Wallace is two under for his round and in the group at eight under with five holes to play, while Rasmus Hojgaard is another shot back with four holes of his second round remaining.
