Begay in front at rain-delayed Spanish Open

MADRID, Spain (AP) — American Notah Begay shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to take the clubhouse lead in the rain-delayed first round of the Spanish Open.

"When I played the U.S. tour it was rumored the weather was bad in Europe and I can testify they were not exaggerating," said Begay, Tiger Woods' former Stanford teammate who has four victories on the PGA Tour.

France's Gregory Bourdy and Sweden's Steven Jeppersen also were 4 under, both with five holes to play on the Centro Nacional de Golf course.

Half of the players didn't even start the round because of heavy rain.
