Hennie du Plessis was part of a four-way tie for the lead at the end of a weather-affected day one of the ISPS Handa Championship in Spain.
There was a delay of over two hours in the morning as the ground staff did a remarkable job to get play under way at The Lakes Course at Infinitum following very heavy rain and thunderstorms.
Scotland’s David Law posted an excellent bogey-free 65 to set the target but was reeled in as conditions improved in the afternoon.
American Veerman overcame a bogey-bogey start to come home in 30 and set the mark at six under with a 64, a score matched by Finn Pulkkanen shortly after.
Playing partners SSP Chawrasia and Du Plessis then joined them at that score but had two holes to complete on Friday morning, with 37 other players also yet to complete round one.
Law and England’s Jack Senior were in the clubhouse at five under alongside Dane Rasmus Højgaard and Italy’s Guido Migliozzi, who had three and one holes to complete, respectively.
