Pretoria - Thunderstorms caused play to be suspended for the second day in a row at the Tshwane Open on Saturday.

A storm hit the Copperleaf Golf and Country Estate at 15:06 with the leaders on the 13th hole and officials took the players off the course with lightning in the area.

Mark Tullo of Chile and South African Charl Coetzee shared the lead on 15 under in the co-sanctioned European and Sunshine Tour event.

First round leader Darren Fichardt was two shots adrift on 13 under with four holes left to play.

Earlier, the second round was completed after the suspension in play on Friday afternoon.

It was unclear if the weather would improve and if the third round could be completed on Saturday.
