Garcia leads suspended Castellon Masters

CASTELLON, Spain, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Sergio Garcia shot 8-under-par 63 Thursday and led the first-round at the Castello Masters when the European Tour tournament was suspended by darkness.

The defending champion, playing in his native Castellon, Spain, leads Sweden's Michael Jonzon by one stroke in the clubhouse and was one of just a handful of golfers able to play a complete first round on a day that included wind gusts of 40 mph and a three-hour delay.

"We get a wind like that only three or four days a year," Garcia said. "And usually on those days, we chill at home!"

Two-time major tournament winner Angel Cabrera of Argentina, the reigning Masters champion, encountered problems flying to Spain from Bermuda, where he had played in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf Tuesday and Wednesday, and was unable to compete in the first round.
