Clark, Madsen share lead at rain-delayed European Tour season opener on shortened course

Morten Orum Madsen made a late charge to match Tim Clark's 5-under 60 Saturday on a shortened course and shared the first-round lead at the rain-delayed Nelson Mandela Championship.

South Africa's Clark had six birdies and just one bogey on the Royal Durban Golf Club in the European Tour season opener, which finally got under way after the first two days were washed out.

Norway's Madsen had seven birdies and two bogeys to join Clark at the top of the leaderboard in the first event on the 2013 Race to Dubai.

The course was adjusted to a par 65 from a par 70 and reduced by about 1,600 yards after most holes were under water on Friday.
