MONZA, Italy (AP) Chris Paisley took a one-stroke lead in the second round of the Italian Open on Friday before thunderstorms ended play early.

Seeking his first European Tour win, Paisley was at 10-under through 13 holes, putting him one shot ahead of Masters champion and fellow Englishman Danny Willett.

Clubhouse leader Richard Green, Chris Hanson and Alexander Levy were at 8-under, a shot clear of Andy Sullivan and defending champion and overnight leader Rikard Karlberg, who didn't start his second round.

The second round was scheduled to be completed at 7:30 a.m. (0530 GMT) Saturday morning at the Golf Club Milano, next to Monza's Formula One circuit.

More than half of Darren Clarke's Europe team – including Willett and Sullivan – is competing in Monza with the Ryder Cup scheduled for Hazeltine in Minnesota at the end of the month.
