The KLM Open was also stopped by gusting winds and driving rain, but Bernd Wiesberger and Richard Finch had completed their opening rounds to top the leaderboard at The Dutch course.
Bernd and Richard both carded -5 under par 66 to top the KLM Open leaderboard, and will now have a long rest before starting their second rounds.
Bernd said had had putted well;
“I putted nicely today and controlled the ball flight well. I think I only missed three or four greens which was pretty good in these conditions.”
The conditions were really tough out there and although I gave away a couple of easy shots I am really happy with the score and the way I played today.”
“So overall I am happy with the start. I have been playing well recently but maybe not getting the results I feel I should have been getting so hopefully I can change that soon.”
Richard was happy to play well, returning from a long lay-off due to injury;
“It was important to get off to a good start today because when you are playing on conditions like this you know it’s going to be a battle so to start with two birdies was huge, it felt like I had a bit of credit in the bank.”
“I managed to hang in and finish well so I am delighted. It’s been a while since I have been at the top of a leaderboard to be honest.”
“Obviously I missed last year through injury and haven’t really got it going since I came back but today was very encouraging and I hope to be able to keep that going for the next few days.”
