Six Scots have still to complete first rounds in

Morocco as winds force suspension of play

Due to heavy winds, play in the first round of the Ocean Open at Agadir on Morocco's Atlantic coastline had to to be to suspended. Two French professionals, Romain Bechu and Mathieu Decottignies-Lafon, are currently sharing the lead after they each scored four-under-par 67s in the morning.
The weather doesn’t seem so be a big fan of golf in Morocco. In Mohammedia the first round of the Open Royal Golf Anfa Mohammedia had to be suspended due to ground  fog. That wasn’t a problem in Agadir as the sun shone bright, but strong winds forced tournament director Simon Bowler to stop the afternoon block.
Those players who couldn’t complete 18 holes  will finish their round on Friday morning.
They included all six Scots in the field.
Chris Robb and Philip McLean are +1 after 9 holes.
Kevin Duncan is +2 after 9 holes.
Ross Cameron is +3 after 9 holes.
Alexander Culverwell is +4 after 9 holes.
Sam Kiloh, due to go out in the last threestome, has still to hit a shot!
The morning block was able to get back to the clubhouse without any interruption.
