Storm halts Westwood in Indonesia

Lee Westwood moved into a tie for the lead at the Indonesian Masters before the second round was suspended by thunder and lightning at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club.

The No. 2-ranked Westwood rolled in four straight birdies to begin his round and holed a seventh at the 16th to move to 9 under for the tournament before he was forced off the course. Play will resume early Saturday.

Shaaban Hussin of Malaysia and Park Hyun-bin of South Korea were already in the clubhouse on 9 under.

”Good day on the links,” Westwood wrote on his Twitter feed. ”Opened with 4 straight birdies but got to say I hate not finishing!”

Westwood will reclaim the top ranking from Martin Kaymer this week if he take the title and Luke Donald does not win The Heritage tournament in Hilton Head Island, S.C.
