Sweden's Daniel Chopra seized the lead as he bids to capture a second Iskandar Johor Open on a course he calls his "second home".
Chopra, 37, moved five strokes clear of the field in adding a six-under par 65 in the second round just hours after ending the first round with a 64 for a 13-under par tally on the rain-softened Horizon Hills course.
However, a further thunderstorm delay has raised the strong possibility of the $2 million event being reduced to 54 holes.
Strong field for DGC Ladies Open
