Law four under after 7 holes, 

then rain stops play in France

Press Release 
Nico Geyger and David Law (pictured) starred on the first day of the Cordon Golf Open as a thunderstorm and heavy rain prevented Round One of the Challenge Tour event from being completed at Golf Blue Green de Pléneuf Val Andre in France.
The Chilean started his round with four straight birdies before two more either side of the turn took him to six under par, one ahead of the clubhouse leader Thomas Perrot, before a play was suspended for the day, initially for lightning and then due to a waterlogged course.
Geyger’s best result this season was his unfortunate 11th place in Northern Ireland earlier this month, where he lost in his first stroke play match courtesy of a remarkable albatross on the final hole by Ricardo Santos, but he is hopeful of a good result to improve his Road to Oman Ranking of 91st.
“It’s unfortunate to have a delay, especially when you’re in the middle of a good round,” said the 31-year-old. “We had rain early in the round but it was still ok, then it was good, but it’s the same for everyone when a delay happens."
Out in the perfect morning conditions, Perrot’s five under par round of 65 featured an eagle and three birdies, while his compatriot Pierre-Yves Rolland – playing at his home course as a qualifier – shot an impressive 69.
Of the other morning starters to complete their rounds, Jules Coupade, Oliv Rozner and Marcel Schneider were the most notable, all signing for rounds of 66 to sit two off Geyger’s overnight lead.
Aberdeen's David Law started at the 10th holed and was four under par after seven holes when play was stopped. He birdied the 10th, 11th, 12th and 15th.
Jack Doherty (69), Ewen Ferguson (74) and Jamie McLeary (78) were able to complete their rounds. 
Paul Shields was three over par after five when called in.
