Soren leads, Fitz goes low

Will anyone ever break 60??

Soren Kjeldson holds a one shot lead at the halfway stage of the KLM Open as the incredibly low scores kept coming on day 2.

Our leader Kjeldson shot a second successive 64 to reach 12 under par one stroke clear of Wade Ormsby and David Horsey after he fired six birdies in his second round. He’s only had one bogey in 36 holes and after winning the Irish open this year his love affair with links courses is clearly shining through as he looks to win for the second time on the European Tour this year. 

David Horsey continued on his good form from last week in the Russian Open as he shot a four under par round of 66 to move to 11 under par for the tournament and a tie of second. Horsey said ‘when you’re holing putts you can always see a score no matter where you hit it’ and whilst not all of us ametuer golfers may not agree with him especially me after my round the other day, Horsey is looking in ominous form highlighted by his chip in from the edge of the green at the 14th which was his fifth birdie of the day. “The blades working nicely and hopefully it will continue to do so”

Clog in the machine: Wade Ormsby twats it


Englishman James Morrison shot a three under par round of 67 to move to 10 under par for the tournament and keep himself in contention heading into the weekend. He had a messy front nine going out in 36 with two birdies and two bogeys however on thehe back nine he really started to get it going with gains at the 13th, 14th and the par 3 17th.

The round of the day however belonged to England’s Matt Fitzpatrick the former US Ametuer Champion came within 2 inches of achieving the first 59 on the European tour ever narrowly missing his birdie putt on the last on his way to a scintillating round of 60. Fitzpatrick moved up 96 places in the field after his round of 60 and has shown an incredible recovery as he found himself 3 shots over par at one point in his first round and threatening to miss the cut before producing these heroics in round two. He said “I was just trying to get the read right on that putt on there last there - in fact I forgot to hit it with the right pace”

“But it’s been a great day and I can’t have any complaints about a 60”

There were other notable scores in a five under par round for last weeks winner Lee Slattery a well as rounds of six under from both Richard Green and Jason Barnes, however veteran Paul Lawrie could only manage a dissapointing one over par round of 71 but it was a very exciting days golf and sets up round 3 very nicely this weekend.
