Storms push Sicilian Open to Monday finish
Sunday, March 20, 2011
RAGUSA, Sicily – France’s Raphael Jacquelin held a one-shot lead over England’s Anthony Wall when final-round play at the inaugural Sicilian Open was suspended because of darkness Sunday.
A lightning storm before the leaders teed off at the Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa slowed down play. The year’s first European Tour event on European soil will be completed Monday.
Seeking his first tour title since 2007, Jacquelin bogeyed his final hole, the par-5 12th, and stood at 11-under. Wall birdied the 12th, with Spain’s Jose Manuel Lara another shot back through 15 holes.
Sweden’s Joel Sjoholm is fourth at 7-under with the clubhouse lead following a 2-under 69.
