DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Welsh golfer Jamie Donaldson followed his opening 62 with a solid 3-under-par 69 to take the clubhouse lead in the weather-interrupted second round of the Dubai Desert Classic on Friday.
Tee times were delayed for nearly three hours because of thick fog. That led to none of the afternoon groups, including Rory McIlroy and defending champion Sergio Garcia, being able to finish their second round when darkness suspended play.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Jamie Donaldson flirted with the European Tour's first-ever 59 before settling for a 10-under 62 Thursday in the first round of the Dubai Desert Classic.

Tyrrell Hatton (64) was fourth, while four-time major winner Rory McIlroy was among five players at 65.

BAD GRIESBACH, Germany (AP) — Defending champion Anthony Wall produced his second big finish in as many days to move into the last 16 at the Paul Lawrie Match Play with a 1-up victory over Haydn Porteous on Friday.

Wood, who has three European Tour victories, fired a second straight 5-under-par 68. His best result this year was at the end of April at the China Open, a tie for fourth.
One shot behind Wood were Benjamin Hebert of France (70) and Renato Paratore of Italy (71) at the Barseback Gold and Country Club. Neither has won on the tour.
CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — Welshman Jamie Donaldson had quite the debut in the Ryder Cup two years ago, though his rookie success wasn't enough to get him invited back.
Not to worry, though, because the Europeans have reloaded. They will send six rookies — exactly half the team — to the first tee over the next three days in their effort to win for the fourth time in a row.
