England’s Rob Harris and Denmark’s Mark Haastrup will start the final round of The Dubliner Challenge in Sweden in a share of the lead after a flooded course prevented any play on Saturday, reducing the tournament to 54 holes.
Heavy rain flooded the bunkers at the Hills Golf Club on the outskirts of Gothenburg, forcing Tournament Director Mats Lanner to cancel play for the entire day.
He said: “Due to the amount of rainfall we had on Friday night and Saturday morning the course was unplayable.
“The decision was taken to have a proper finish to the tournament on Sunday rather than start and be unable to finish play on Saturday and have to carry over. Therefore we have shortened the tournament to 54 holes.
“The weather forecast for overnight and on Sunday morning is for it to be dry so we are confident of a finish.”
Harris and Haastrup are in pole position to land their maiden victory, with the pair locked at the top of the leaderboard on four under par. Erik Algulin of Sweden is a shot off the pace while Pablo del Grosso of Argentina and Germany’s Benjamin Miarka are tied for fourth place on two under par.
