Published: 06/12/2013

Former world number one Luke Donald continued his recent resurgence by claiming a two-shot lead before bad weather brought an early end to the opening day of the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City in South Africa.

England’s Donald, who claimed his first win of the year by defending his Dunlop Phoenix title in Japan 12 days ago, was five under par after 11 holes when play was abandoned for the day due to the threat of lightning.

Almost three hours had already been lost to bad weather, the first thunderstorm hitting the course shortly after noon local time, by which time world number 15 Donald had already moved top of the leaderboard.
