October 1, 1999

COLOGNE, Germany (AP) _ Spanish Ryder Cup player Miguel Angel Jimenez and Germany’s Alex Cejka held a one-stroke lead after the first round of the rain-delayed German Masters was completed today.

The two players fired 6-under 66s Thursday before blowing rain forced play to be halted at the $2.1 million tournament.

The second round also was to be played today under cloudy skies and strong winds with the threat of more rain.

Another Spanish Ryder Cup player, Jose Maria Olazabal, was 6-under Thursday after 11 holes, but finished with a 67.

South Africa’s Retief Goosen and New Zealand’s Greg Turner also were at 67. Fred Couples and Spanish teen-ager Sergio Garcia were among six players tied at 68.

Colin Montgomerie, trying to become Europe’s leading money winner for a record seventh straight year, shot a 70.
