SINGAPORE (AP) - Thomas Bjorn shot a 5-under 66 to take the lead of the Singapore Open after rain interrupted the first round Thursday.

The Dane holed six birdies to take a one-stroke lead over Simon Khan of England, Chinnarat Phadungsil of Thailand and Pablo Martin of Spain.

Top-ranked Rory McIlroy was at even par after eight holes when play was halted for the day due to rain and the threat of lightning.

Half the field -78 golfers - was still on the course when play was stopped. They'll resume Friday morning.

McIlroy had girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki by his side on the course. He is trying to match Luke Donald's 2011 feat of capturing both European and U.S. PGA Tour money titles in the same season.
