Coetzee holds lead halfway through Tshwane Open

CENTURION, South Africa (AP) - South Africa's Charl Coetzee will take a one-stroke lead into the third round of the weather-delayed Tshwane Open in Centurion.

Play in the second round was completed early Saturday due to a thunderstorm late on Friday which forced an abandonment at the Els Club course at the Copperleaf Golf Estate.

Coetzee, who is still seeking his first professional tournament victory after a prolific amateur career, had moved to the clubhouse lead on 12-under par 132 before the stoppage with a second-day score of 65.

Chile's Mark Tullo (66) and South African Tawie Der Walt (65) are in second place at 11-under par.
