Porsche European Open shortened to 54 holes due to poor weather


The 2016 Porsche European Open has been shortened to 54 holes after rain has plagued the tournament's pacing throughout the week. The tournament will conclude on Sunday with the third and final round.

France's Alexander Levy is four shots ahead of Swede Michael Jonzon at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Germany. Levy is at 17 under par through two rounds, opening with 62-63 in the two rounds played over three days.

Bernd Wiesberger and Germans Florian Fritsch and Martin Kaymer are tied for fourth place at 11 under par, while Ross Fisher is a shot in front and alone in third place at 12 under par. Were Fritsch or Kaymer able to rally for the win, either would become the third player in as many weeks to win in their home country on the European Tour.
