Martyn Kaymer leads in Abu Dhabi

By one shot over Rafa Cabrera Bello

Martyn Kaymer holds the 36–hole lead on day two at the HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship as he shoots another 66.

The German has won the trophy three times, with two further top–three finishes in his ten visits, and he clearly loves the layout.

"I don't try to push, I just try to enjoy playing my favourite golf course," he said. "Once in a while when a putt drops in you catch momentum and you can make another three or four birdies coming in, like it happened today. I think I made only two pars on the back nine."

Rafa Cabrera Bello also carded a 66 to sit at 11 under as he too looks to claim his first title since the 2012 Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

Tommy Fleetwood shot another tidy 67, and he's back in third place with Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Paul Dunne. 

But it was a bad at the office for Henrik Stenson, who shot a 71 after his emphatic opening 64.

It's tight at the top, and no one is running away with this one, so everything is well set up for a fascinating moving day.
