The duo, who had both completed their second rounds, battled the toughest of conditions with the late-early draw and were of the opinion that conditions weren’t too different when play was suspended to what it was like when they were out there in the morning.
Kaymer, who battled well to three-under-par 69 for a four-under-par total, tweeted:
I've seen it all now! We'll just play the 36holes in that wind then... #Shit— Craig Connelly (@theweeman77) February 3, 2017
Suspending play now is ridiculous, half the field played 36 holes in these conditions.— Trevor Immelman (@TrevorImmelman) February 3, 2017
Pablo Larrazabal agreed.
Play is expected to resume in Dubai at 7.30am local time [3.30am UK time] on Saturday in what are supposed to be near-perfect conditions. Even more reason for the late-early starters to feel aggrieved.
