Play at the Volvo Finnish Open has been suspended for the day, and the tournament reduced to 54 holes, after incessant torrential rain flooded the Espoon Golfseura, Helsinki.
The tournament promoters, sponsors and European Challenge Tour officials had no option but to continue what will be the third and final round at 9:00am local time on Sunday.
The decision to suspend play was taken on Saturday at 11:35am local time, and left four matches on the order of play that have still to begin round three.
With rain still falling on the course at 3:00pm this afternoon, it was decided that play would be impossible due to heavy flooding on many parts of the course.
Play was delayed by four hours during Thursday’s first round of the Volvo Finnish Open, where Swede Johan Axgren’s eight under par halfway total of 134 leads Englishman Phillip Archer and the Finnish Amateur Roope Kakko by one.
