Graeme McDowell shot to the top of the leaderboard at the Scottish Open as he hit a second-round 64 to move to 11 under for the tournament

The 2010 US Open champion, chasing a second Barclays Scottish Open title in four years, is joint top alongside local stars Peter Whiteford and Scott Jamieson as storms interrupted play leaving a number of players unable to finish their round.

Luke Donald and overnight leader Lee Westwood, world numbers one and two, are among those affected by the hold-up.

Donald stood six under after four holes, with Westwood one better than that – good enough only for a share of 16th place as the low scoring continued.

Padraig Harrington meanwhile also took advantage of the early start as he surged up the field into a tie for 8th on 8 under after a round of 67 while Gareth Maybin and Damien McGrane were the only other Irish man to complete 18 holes as they recovered from opening day’s 73 to also shoot a 68 and 67 respectively move under par for the tournament.

Of the rest Peter Lawrie is 2 under with 5 left to play, Paul McGinley 5 under with 7 to go with Shane Lowry one under for the day after 8 holes and 4 under for the Tournament.

Darren Clarke is 6 under after 8 while Michael Hoey one under with 5 to go.

The second round will re-commence on Saturday morning at 7am.
