ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Graeme Storm shot an 8-under par 64 and Richard Green carded a 65 Friday to share the lead after an incomplete second round in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship.

Play was suspended because of darkness with some players still on the course. Earlier weather delays caused the slowdown.

Storm, of England, and Green, of Australia, were at 11-under 133.

Paul Casey (65) and Anthony Wall (67) were tied for third place at 10-under 134, followed by Brett Rumford (67), Johan Edfors (69) and Rory McIlroy (69), all at 135.

Defending champion Martin Kaymer shot a second straight 68 and was tied with Louis Oosthuizen (69), another shot back

"Graeme cruises around. You wouldn't ever know he was playing that well," Green said. "In the end, he got me by a shot, but it was a good little tussle."

World No. 2 Sergio Garcia (71) was tied for 40th place at 3-under 141.
