Play on day two of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Playa Del Carmen has been brought to a halt due to darkness with almost 60 players to complete their second rounds when play resumes at 7.30am on Saturday morning.

The world number 10, making his first start since the Presidents Cup, flashed midseason form at the El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico with a round that was bettered only by Kizzire (62) and Vaughn Taylor (64).

Four straight birdies on the front nine put Patrick Rodgers at the top of the leaderboard on 11 under after 15 holes on day two, with Fowler also left with three to play.

The 25-year-old former Stanford University standout has yet to make a bogey at the tournament.

Fowler is playing the event for the first occasion and after his opening 65 yesterday he has made further progress today to be 4 under for the round and 10 under for the tournament. Kizzire finished his second round with a 1-under 70, while Fowler still had three holes left to play.

Veteran Brian Gay and PGA Tour rookie Brandon Harkins were another shot back in a share of 4th, both having completed 36 holes.

His biggest hiccup on Friday was a double bogey on the 10th hole amid the wet and windy conditions.

Jonathan Byrd gave the crowd a thrill when he hit a 135-yard tee shot for an ace on the par-3 8th hole, the second hole-in-one in as many days.

Play was earlier delayed for two hours and 15 minutes shortly after the later starters, including Fowler, had begun their second rounds, and 57 players were still on the course when the klaxons sounded to bring the players in for the day.
