Matthew McClean continued to lead the Irish challenge when play was suspended due to waterlogged greens in round three of the African Amateur Strokeplay Championship at Leopard Creek.

The Malone man was two-under for his round through 17 holes and back to even par for the tournament when the hooter called off play for the day.

McClean sits in a share of 15th place with Naas star Robert Brazill matching his two-under par effort through 15 holes to get to one-over and move into 17th spot.

Galgorm Castle’s Josh Hill was three-under on the day and back to five-over when play was halted after eight holes of his round, with Royal Dublin’s Richard Knightly at plus six with five holes left to complete.

Fellow Royal Dublin man Hugh Foley was at seven-over and in a tie for 36th with Castle’s Robert Moran (+8), Carton House’s Marc Boucher (+10) and Forest Little’s Jack McDonnell (+12) completing the Irish scoring in the weather-disrupted event.

Play will resume on Thursday morning, however the Championship has been reduced to 54-holes.
