Singapore - First-round play was suspended in the $6 million Barclays Singapore Open on Thursday because of the risk of lightning after a rain-storm hit the course.

Thomas Bjorn was the clubhouse leader with five-under-par 66 at par-71 Sentosa Golf Club, while world number one Rory McIlroy was one under par through his first seven holes.

After a 105-minute suspension, the round was halted at 11:00 (SA time) and will resume at 07:30 on Friday.
