SINGAPORE (AP) - James Morrison of England has carded 3-under 68 to take the clubhouse lead by two shots in an incomplete second round of the Singapore Open on Friday.

Play was delayed for nearly three hours because of the threat of lightning from a rain storm, and eventually the round was suspended because of darkness with 69 players still to finish.

Morrison, who has one career win on the European Tour, finished with four birdies on the back nine.

"I didn't play as well today as I did yesterday, but I managed to get it round and I am pretty happy with that," he said.

Morrison was at 12 under overall, two ahead of Juvic Pagunsan (66) of the Philippines. Italy's Edoardo Molinari was at 11 under through 10 holes, and Spain's Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano was 10 under for the tournament after 9.

Graeme McDowell, who was 3 under after a par 71, said his stomach flu hurt his play.

"I felt very lethargic this morning and played the front nine like a blind man," McDowell said. "I still had stomach cramps on the back nine and am still not great."

Phil Mickelson, elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame this week, was 2 under after 12 holes.
