Stuart Little is big in Spain

MADRID, Spain — England’s Stuart Little shot a 3-under 69 to take a one-stroke lead in the rain-plagued Spanish Open.

The rain that soaked the Centro Nacional de Golf course on Thursday, returned Friday, allowing only 38 of the 155-man field to complete 36 holes.

Little had an 8-under 136 total. South Africa’s Charl Schwartzel (68) and Englishmen Mark Foster (69) and Nick Dougherty (71) were at 7 under.
