American John Hahn shoots 61
EAST LONDON, South Africa -- John Hahn had six birdies and an eagle in his back nine for a 10-under 61 to lead the Africa Open by two shots before the second round was postponed by bad light on Friday.
American Hahn did finish after a 90-minute morning rain delay, and took just 28 strokes to come home after starting on No. 10 to go 16 under. He surged ahead of first-round leader Ricardo Santos, who shot a 5-under 66 to be 14 under overall.
Hahn's putter was hot with three birdies and an eagle in four holes after the turn to give the U.S. qualifying school graduate a chance at a first career win.
