SANTO DA SERRA, Madeira Islands (AP) -- Scott Henry shot a 5-under 67 Friday to take a two-shot clubhouse lead in the first round of the fog-affected Madeira Islands Open.

The heavy fog that forced Thursday's first day to be abandoned returned mid-morning Friday and caused a four-hour delay, forcing organizers to shorten the event to 54 holes. Only half of the 144-player field managed to complete their first round.

Henry had eight birdies in his round, including three in succession from the 12th, as the Scottish golfer seeks his first European Tour title.

England's Andrew Marshall, Spain's Pedro Oriol and Austria's Martin Wiegele were tied for second.

Finland's Tapio Pulkannen hit a hole-in-one at the par-3 17th but finished with an 80.
