The second round of the men’s golf tournament at the Tokyo Olympics could not be completed. The competition was halted due to unfavorable weather conditions.

This time the organizers’ plans were thwarted by a storm that swept through the Kasumigaseki Country Club. Soon after the competition began, a two-hour break was announced. Later, the struggle resumed, but not for long. The last group that started the match at 11:04 local time (4:04 Poland time) was unable to finish their streak.
There were sixteen golfers of those, including Polish actor, Adrian Mironc, who cannot be considered a successful performer. He had to stop his attempt after fourteen holes where he scored +2 which is twice higher than what is called equal (the norm). This put him in 55th place.
The group, which must complete the holes from the second round, will begin the competition Saturday morning at 7:45 JST (0:45 in Poland). Then the third of the four scheduled rounds will begin.

Zander Shaveli, American, leads, with a score of -11 after 36 holes (overall average of 71 – he scored 68 points on day one and 63 on day two). Just behind is Mexican Carlos Ortiz, who is 10 times below normal, third with Eto’o Pereira from Chile, Alex Noren from Sweden, Hideki Matsuyama from Japan and Sepp Straka from Austria.
The first Olympic golf champion will be announced on Sunday. Of course, as long as the weather conditions do not conflict with the plans.
