Dermot McElroy and Stuart Grehan saw their second round assaults on the lead cut short after the second round of the Spey Valley Championship was postponed until Friday morning due to heavy rain and extreme weather forecasts. 

Players will take to the course at 9am and, due to the severe weather conditions experienced across the week, this tournament will now be contested over 36 holes with McElroy and Grehan in the hunt. 

Matches 42, 43, 44 and 45 are yet to take to the course for their second rounds, but these will now be the final groups to close out the Spey Valley Championship. 

The top 50 and ties will be entitled to the prize money following the conclusion of the second round on Friday. 

McElroy was just one off the pace in second place on eight-under having played the first fourteen holes of round two in six-under-par while Grehan of Tullamore was a shot further back after twelve holes in fifth place. 

Mullingar’s Daniel Mulligan had not begun his second round from two-under while Robin Dawson and Ronan Mullarney will complete the last few holes of round two from level-par. 

Luke Donnelly had not yet returned to the course either from level-par while Daniel Brennan was six-over after three holes while Brendan McCarroll and Rhys Clarke are in the clubhouse on seven and ten-over. 

Michael Stewart of Scotland has done all he can at nine-under through 36 holes and he will have to wait to see if his total will be beaten.
