Play was suspended for the day when thunder and lightning struck on the Moray Firth coast.

A club spokesperson said players would restart their rounds at 7am today from the position they finished when play was interrupted on Tuesday.

"In the event of a tie in the scratch section there will be no play-off and qualifiers will be worked out on better old course score.
