Play was suspended at the Maybank Malaysian Open at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country club, due to a lightening storm. Before the storm some players had finished their rounds including Hennie Otto and Jbe Kruger who currently sit atop the leaderboard on -9 under par.

Jbe Kruger spoke about the strong South African presence at the Maybank Malaysian Open;
“I think all of us South Africans are coming into this tournament with a little bit of form coming back. I spoke to Charl and he said he was struggling in the last couple of weeks. I was struggling as well so I guess we are just coming back into form. I have been playing well recently and we are taking small steps and gradually getting there. Most of the work that I have been doing is really on the mental side as opposed to the technical side of things and I am sticking with and trying to build on that momentum.”
We will see how things unfold when play restarts tomorrow, the guys who had finished their rounds will have plenty of time to relax and recuperate before they tee it up again. The others will have to finish round two and then go straight into round three.
