NH Collection Open suspended

CADIZ, Spain -- Marc Warren of Scotland shot a 5-under 67 on Friday to take the clubhouse lead at the NH Collection Open before the second round of the European Tour event was suspended because of darkness.

Warren made six birdies and a bogey for a 5-under total of 139 and sat one shot ahead of Felipe Aguilar of Chile, who carded a 69.

David Horsey of England was also 5 under through 15 holes, joining Warren atop the leaderboard before play was stopped.

Rain delayed the start of the inaugural event Thursday, forcing the first round to also be suspended and finished Friday morning. Warren played the last seven holes of his first round in the morning before coming back for the second.

"At the start of the second round I struggled a bit with concentration, but once I got it going I played really good," Warren said. "[The] long game was excellent, short game was good."

Horsey and 44 more golfers in the 144-player field will have to complete the second round early Saturday.
