Play suspended at Spanish Open

Play suspended at Spanish Open

A flooded course led to the Reale Seguros Spanish Open being suspended in Seville today before overnight leader Gregory Bourdy had teed off for his third round.

Play was possible earlier on, but only 12 of the 68 players completed their day’s work before the hold-up came at lunchtime.

Frenchman Bourdy, with only one top 10 finish in the past year, led on five under par by one from England’s Simon Dyson and Robert Rock, 19-year-old Italian Matteo Manassero and home hope Jorge Campillo, a graduate from last season’s Challenge Tour.

The best early move came from nearly 300 Tour events came on the course four years ago.

He birdied the first and third to climb into a share of 10th spot on two under, but had completed only one more hole when officials decided to bring the players in.
