Bad weather continued to wreak havoc with the Madeira Islands Open on Saturday, with the European Tour's 1,500th official event reduced to 36 holes.

No play at all was possible on Thursday due to fog and more delays on Friday meant the tournament had already been cut to three rounds.

A further reduction to 36 holes was then announced following another suspension of play on Saturday morning, with tournament officials willing to sanction a Monday finish to complete two rounds.

The afternoon starters were told they would not begin their second rounds on Saturday, including Scotland's Scott Henry, who holds the clubhouse lead after completing a five-under-par 67 on Friday.

And after play was suspended for the day it was announced that a cut to the top 65 players and ties would take place after the first round had been completed on Sunday.

Henry holds a one-shot lead over English pair Daniel Brooks and Lloyd Kennedy, who both returned rounds of 68, with Spain's Antonio Hortal also four under with two holes to play.

England's Andrew Marshall, Austria's Martin Wiegele, Spain's Pedro Oriol and France's Julien Guerrier are another stroke back after rounds of 69.
