Vandals and rain mar Dutch Open start

Vandalism to four greens delayed the start of the KLM Open in the Netherlands and the event then suffered a much longer delay yesterday because of flooding.

England's Robert Dinwiddie, the first player to tee off, just had time to complete a four-under-par 66 when play at Hilversum was halted by a heavy downpour. The tournament resumed only at 3.45pm. Defending champion and world No 3 Martin Kaymer was struggling at three over after 15 holes.
