MUSCAT, Oman — Sand proved to be a major hazard at the Oman Open on Friday. Play was suspended early in the second round of the European Tour event because of sandstorms which blew in off the coast lining Al Mouj Golf. In one incident, first-round leader Kurt Kitayama played a shot onto a green and saw his ball get blown into a bunker. Your browser does not support iframes.
