SANTO DA SERRA, Madeira Islands (AP) - Scotland's Craig Lee took a one-stroke lead over American Peter Uihlein and Chile's Mark Tullo on Friday during the suspended second round of the Madeira Islands Open.

Lee shot a 4-under 68 to reach 9-under 135 at Santo da Serra Golf Club.

Uihlein, the former Oklahoma State star who won the 2010 U.S. Amateur, settled for a 64 after playing the first 12 holes in 10 under with an eagle and eight birdies. He bogeyed Nos. 15 and 16.

``It was really fun,'' said Uihlein, the youngest son of Acushnet chief executive Wally Uihlein. ``I hit it well, I putted well and the first 12 holes were pretty special. It was just drawing out perfect. You have a game plan and you just execute it and that's all it was in those first 12 holes.

``There were some really hard holes on the way in and it got very cold at the end so I'm glad to be done. Today I just tried to put a little more focus on my scoring clubs and really put the ball in the right spot on the greens. ... I never really thought about the 59 to be honest, because I knew the holes coming in were tough but it was a really good day.''

Tullo had a 69. France's Thomas Levet was fourth at 7 under after a 67.

Fog delayed play for 1 1/2 hours and the round was suspended because of darkness.

``It was very tricky out there,'' Lee said. ``It was pretty cold and then the fog came down and there was a delay so it was pretty hard to focus and get back into it again, but I managed to do that. ... I managed to get my distance control right with a lot of my wedge shots and that's key here.''
