McIlroy and Westwood struggle to make impact in Holland

Mark Garrod

Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy were still struggling to make an impact as the KLM Open resumed at Hilversum in the Netherlands today.

The two stars were among those who had to complete their first rounds following yesterday's delays, first for vandalism to four greens and then for flooding.

Both were one over par and down in joint 73rd place with six holes to play, Westwood bogeying the short 10th and McIlroy dropping a shot on the ninth, but getting it back at the next.

England's Simon Dyson and German Marcel Siem led overnight on five under, both having the luxury of a long lie-in before they began their second rounds later in the day.

Swede Johan Edfors birdied the 10th and 12th to join England's Robert Dinwiddie in third place just one behind.
