Masters blown off course
Saturday 04 February 2012
The Qatar Masters was reduced to a 54-hole tournament after 45mph desert winds allowed only three hours of play in yesterday's second round.
The American John Daly leads on five under par through 18 holes, one ahead of Spain's Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano (in 25).
Fernandez-Castano, 31, started the day in a tie for the lead with the 45-year-old Daly but bogeyed two of the seven holes he was able to play to drop back to four under. "I didn't have any balls moving but certain shots you could hardly keep balanced. Being selfish, I'm quite happy play was called off," he said.
The world No 3 Lee Westwood was one over par after 24 holes.
