HILVERSUM, Netherlands, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Stephen Dodd and Michael Siem are tied for the lead following Friday's play at the European Tour's KLM Open in the Netherlands.

Delays Thursday meant many players had to finish their first rounds Friday. That rippled through second-round play and about half the field is yet to complete the second round.

Dodd and Siem, who started at No. 9 for the second round, are in that category. Dodd is 6-under-par through 13 holes and 8-under for the tournament. Siem, who was tied with Simon Dyson for the first-round lead, is 3-under after 11 second-round holes and also 8-under.

Shiv Kapur, who turned in a 3-under 67 for the second round, owns the clubhouse lead at 7-under 133.

Dyson, 1-under through 11 holes in the second round, is at 6-under. James Kingston (68 in the second round) and Gary Orr (66) are at 6-under after 36 holes.

Siem had two birdies and an eagle -- at the 499-yard, par 5 18th hole -- against one bogey in his second round.

Dodd is bogey-free in the second round. He had an eagle at the 12th hole -- a 484-yard par 5 -- and birdies at 9, 15, 17 and 18.
