Stormy Singapore Open set for thrilling finish

other Updated: Nov 13, 2011 21:11 IST

Filipino Juvic Pagunsan and Spain’s Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano will return on Monday to complete a sudden-death playoff for a Singapore Open title that the weather seems determined to wash out.

Both finished a dramatic final round of a tournament already reduced to 54 holes tied on 14-under par on Sunday, but two attempts at a sudden-death playoff failed under the stormy skies.

The joint-leaders were only able to tee off on the par-five 18th playoff hole before the threat of thunder sent them back to the clubhouse.
