England pulled the short straw today as the draw had them playing late in the afternoon. Bad weather delayed the start with nearly 2.5 hours and by this time the course was starting to get really wet. On top of this it was still raining heavily. Los Olivos GC in these conditions proved a real difficult test and England, along with other teams out at this time, dropped shots. After three holes England had gone back to level par. When play was finally suspended due to both thunder and flooding Eddie Pepperell, first in line for England, had only just made it to the 7th green.

Denmark was out early today and made the most of it. At 6 under they hold the overnight lead. Other teams that made some good progress in the early hours were the US, New Zealand, Scotland and Germany.

On Saturday play in the second round will resume at 9 am with a view to get to the halfway stage when a draw will be made, based on the results, in order to start the third round as soon as possible.

As per a late Saturday night decision by the Championship Committee the tournament will be shortened to 54 holes. Follow Live Scoring by clicking here.
