New Zealand's Ryan Fox joined England's Luke Donald in the lead before play was suspended for the day.
“We came off the course due to lightning, that danger remained for a few hours, and unfortunately the rain then continued. We went out to have a good look at the course and it was waterlogged. What it needed was the rain to stop for a couple of hours to allow us to prepare the course," said Tournament Director David Williams.
“When it got to around 3.30pm it meant that at most we would only get a few holes completed and conditions still would not have been good. We decided that the sensible move would be to suspend today and re-start tomorrow at 7.45am. The groups will remain the same for the third round, with no re-draw, to minimise the turnaround time between rounds.”
