Bad Griesbach - Alexander Levy produced a stunning series of birdies to go 17-under when the European Open second round was suspended with the Frenchman left with one hole to play.

Matthew Southgate was one of the players to complete his round and the Englishman held the clubhouse lead on nine under par.

With almost seven hours of play lost due to early morning fog over the first two days at Bad Griesbach Levy completed his first round on Friday, making five birdies in nine holes to lead at nine under.

A further eight birdies followed in 17 holes before the horn sounded for darkness.

Robert Karlsson and playing partner Ross Fisher were then at 11 under with three holes to complete, with the Swede on the charge at nine under for his first 15 holes.

Local favourite Martin Kaymer was also at 11 under with one to play as he finalises his preparations for next week's Ryder Cup.

The second wave of players will get their second rounds under way on Saturday morning, with round three scheduled to begin in the afternoon.
