Indian golfer S. S. P. Chawrasia was Tied-50 at the end of his fourth and final round at the Shenzhen International. About 20 players were still to finish their final round and the lead group was about to complete the 13th hole.

Chawrasia, who was T-16 at the halfway stage, shot one-over 73 with 17 pars and one bogey in the final round to finish the week at even par 288. Over six and a half hours had been lost on days one and two due to electrical activity and another lengthy stoppage on Sunday meant the final round could not be completed and the scene was set for a dramatic Monday shootout in Guangdong.

Lee, Levy, Slattery share lead

Soomin Lee, Alexander Levy and Lee Slattery all shared the lead as the Shenzhen International went into a fifth day at Genzon Golf Club. Lee, Levy and Slattery were all 14-under on the back nine when darkness saw play suspended, with the South Korean and Englishman having completed 13 holes, and Levy facing a birdie putt on the 13th green when play resumes at 6.30am.

Australian Scott Hend was in the clubhouse at 13-under after an impressive 66, alongside South African Brandon Stone who had played 13 holes and Dutchman Joost Luiten who was facing a par putt on the 16th.

Victory for Lee would be a first European Tour win in just his sixth event while Levy is going for a second triumph on this layout after winning the Volvo China Open in 2014.

Two-time Major Championship winner Bubba Watson, Nacho Elvira and Rikard Karlberg were then at ten-under alongside Bradley Dredge and Thorbjlesen, who had five and three holes to play respectively.
