Singapore Open 2012: Bjorn takes the lead despite weather delays

Stanley Chou

Mother Nature finally held off long enough for Thomas Bjorn to take the tournament lead at the Singapore Open.

Thomas Bjorn has taken a one-shot lead at the 2012 Singapore on a week where the weather has been less than cooperative for the field.

The tournament has already experienced three separate weather delays due to heavy thunderstorms that have soaked the Sentosa Golf Club. At times the course became unplayable, prompting tournament officials to pull golfers off the course.

The second and third rounds began early Saturday morning, and Bjorn took advantage of the clear skies before play was called on account of darkness.

"This course doesn't really offer you that many wedges," he told reporters.

"Your mid-irons have to be on but driving is also essential on this course. You need to get off the tee well and I've done that for two days, and long may it continue."

Chris Wood is currently a shot behind Bjorn after recording a 65 in his second round and another birdie in his first three holes of his third round. George Coetzee is two-shots back and in third position after his second-round 63 and an even-par start to his third.
