Tiffany Chan Tsz-ching endured a frustrating day at the Symetra Tour’s Island Resort Championship as the Hong Kong Olympian played the opening six holes of her second round in three-over par before rain halted proceedings in Michigan.

Chan opened with a first round of two-under-par 70 at the 6,286-yard Sweetgrass Golf Club, but slipped back to one-over par overall and down in a tie for 54th place, sitting right on the projected cut line.

The 23-year-old, though, has plenty of holes remaining to avoid a first professional cut with round two set to resume at 7.30am local time on Sunday morning.

American Emma Talley leads the way at nine-under par and in possession of a three-shot lead after playing the opening eight holes in three-under par with around half the field yet to finish their second rounds.
