Kelly looks the man to beat in the weather-hit Canadian Open after moving onto 11-under-par.

Kelly looks the man to beat in the weather-hit Canadian Open after moving onto 11-under-par.

The 42-year-old Kelly moved onto 11-under par after 15 holes when play was abandoned for the day -- after firing a seven-under-par first round 65, which he completed on Friday morning.

The second round resumes on Saturday morning following two lengthy rain and lightning delays on Thursday and Friday which has seen no golfer complete his 36 holes.

Kevin Na and Camilo Villegas shot nine-under-par 63s to share the first round lead. Villegas is one-under-par through 15 holes and shares second place on 10-under-par overall, alongside Tim Herron, Martin Laird and Nathan Green.

Kelly rolled in seven birdies in a nine-hole stretch in the opening round. He then had one bogey and five birdies before the second round was halted because of lightning.

Na was waiting to tee off for the second round when play was suspended. He is tied for sixth at nine-under-par with Bob Estes, who has played 13 holes.

The top Canadian is Calgary's Stephen Ames who shot an opening round 68. He is trying to become the first Canadian to win the Open since Pat Fletcher in 1954.
