American Bubba Watson has a one-shot clubhouse lead at the storm-interrupted Shenzhen International, with 56 players set to finish their first rounds early on Friday.

The two-time Masters champion, 38, carded a six-under-par 66, which included an eagle and five birdies, before play was suspended.

Five players are one shot behind Watson in China.

England’s Tommy Fleetwood is three shots back after a three-under-par 69.

The 56 players who still have to finish their opening rounds will do so early on Friday before the second round takes place.
