GRAEME Storm was today making an early exit from the Barclays Scottish Open.

After his first-round 75 on Thursday, the Hartlepool golfer needed a low score yesterday to give himself a chance of making the cut at Inverness.

While Storm improved with a one-under par 71, it left him in equal 131st at the halfway stage on two over par.

Storm birdied the 18th and the second but suffered a bogey five at the third.

Play at the Barclays Scottish Open will not begin until 2pm at the earliest on Saturday after overnight rain flooded the course at Castle Stuart.

No spectators were being admitted this morning such was the severity of the downpour, which followed on from two rain stoppages yesterday when 78 players had still not completed their second rounds.
