Heavy rain forced an early suspension of play in the first round of the Joburg Open, with 98 players still to complete their opening 18 holes, so the tournament is already behind schedule.
American Paul Peterson, an ante-post 150-1 chance, set the pace with a nine-under-par 62 before Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club became waterlogged. With more rain forecast, a weather-shortened event is entirely feasible.
Talented South African youngster Christiaan Bezuidenhout closed round one with back-to-back birdies and can forge upwards on the leaderboard when his delayed second-round threeball finally takes place. Bezuidenhout should outscore playing partners Johan Carlsson and Simon Dyson in round two.
