Bushey golfer Callum Shinkwin will resume his second round tomorrow still firmly in contention after play was suspended for the day at the Czech Masters due to a flooded course.

The Moor Park Golf Club professional had led by one shot after the first round following a fine six-under-par 66, but had dropped back to four-under after five holes when play was called off in the cold and wet conditions.

Starting his second round from the 10th, Shinkwin dropped three shots in his opening four holes with a double bogey at the par four 11th and a bogey four at the 13th. But he pulled one of those back with a birdie three at 14 to lie in a share of fifth spot when conditions were deemed unplayable.

Moor Park club-mate Matt Wallace was among the early second round starters and he lies on one-over-par after following up his opening round of 72 with a 73.

The 27-year-old also started from the 10th and went ‘out’ in a level-par score of 36 following birdies at 13 and the next par three at 16. But these were offset by dropped shots at two par fours at 15 and 17.

Wallace had been on track to stay at level par for the tournament, but a bogey on the par three seventh left him in a share of 53rd when play was suspended.

The Prague event is currently led by Lee Slaterry, who defied the conditions to fire a stunning 65 to move him to the top of the leaderboard on seven-under.
