American Brian Stuard has set the pace in the early stages of a weather-affected opening day at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Play was delayed for more than an hour in the morning due to lightning and when the inclement weather suspended play early, only 14 players had managed to complete their opening rounds.

First round leaderboard

US unless stated

-5 B Stuard (15)
-4 E Compton (17)
-4 A Quiros (15) (Esp)
-3 J Teater (17)
-3 H English (17)
-3 J Maggert (15)
-3 J Lovemark (12)

But it was Stuard, who had completed 15 holes when play was stopped for a second time, who led the way on five-under.

The 30-year-old had reached the turn in 33 with four birdies and a bogey and picked up two further shots on the back nine to lead the field by one.

Fellow American Erik Compton was in second position having completed 17 holes alongside Spaniard Alviro Quiros, who had four more to play.

Veteran Jeff Maggert and Harris English were in a group of four players still out on the course at three under while the clubhouse lead was jointly held by Matt Jones, Will MacKenzie and Len Mattiace - who were in a group of six a shot further back.

Former Open champion Justin Leonard was also sat on two under with just the 18th to negotiate.

Amongst those yet to get out on the course in Mexico were defending champion John Huh, Colombian Camilo Villegas and Swede Robert Karlsson.
