Ian Poulter's one-shot lead at the Barclays Singapore Open remained intact as the rain-affected first round suffered another delay on the second morning at Sentosa Golf Club.

Poulter set the clubhouse lead with a five under par 66 on Thursday before a three-hour delay left half the field unable to complete their rounds.

The 78 players returned on Friday morning and Felipe Aguilar, Pablo Martin and Richard Green made the biggest impressions on the leaderboard as the trio joined Dane Anders Hansen, Japan's Kodai Ichihara and Frenchman Thomas Levet at three under.

Ernie Els and qualifier Chan Yih-shin are tied for second, a shot adrift of Poulter on four under.

With thunderstorms expected over the next two days, several players began their second rounds this morning, but with a handful still to complete their first 18 holes around the Serapong Course, an approaching thunderstrom halted play just before midday.

Australia's Jason King had moved onto four under and looked set to challenge Poulter but endured a nightmare on the par-five 16th after finding two bunkers and carding a triple bogey to drop to one under with two holes to play.

Playing partner Sam Hutsby, fresh from an eighth-place finish at last week's CASTELLO MASTERS Costa Azahar, also found trouble on the 16th and a bogey saw him slip back to two under.

Of the players able to start their second rounds, Chilean Aguilar and China's Liang Wen-chong moved onto four under through three holes.
