Søren Kjeldsen joins Matt Fitzpatrick at the top of the British Masters leaderboard at Woburn Golf Club in England.
Søren fired a second round -3 under par 68 to join overnight leader Matt at the top of the British Masters leaderboard at -9 under par, after 36 holes of the competition. Matt carded -2 under 69.
Søren loves to play golf, especially when the game is good, but he did struggle with the putter early on;
“When you play nicely you just want to keep going. I’ve always enjoyed playing a lot.”
“I know a lot of guys take a lot of time off but I love the competition, I love to be out there, I feel that’s why I improve so I’ve always had the strategy of playing a lot.”
“I got off to a little bit of a slow start, I played pretty well but I didn’t make the putts.”
“Then I three-putted 16, got it back nicely on 17 and then again – nice birdie on one, bad bogey on two, and then I hit a bad second shot on three into the bunker.”
“I focus a lot on the sound when the club hits the sand and straight away I felt like it had a lovely sound to the shot and I just managed to get up on the hill and see it disappear. Nice feeling.”
Matt said his game was not so good today, and he was pleased to still be at the top of the leaderboard. He chipped in at the third;
“I thought about putting it at first but the rough was a little bit too thick to start with so I just needed to get it out of that and literally just trickle it over the hill and hopefully it was going to go close, luckily it went in.”
“It was pretty tough out there today for me.”
“I didn’t feel like I hit it my best so it was nice to score well coming in and shoot 69 to stay at the top of the leaderboard which is always nice.”
Richard Bland and Kiradech Aphibarnrat share third place, just one shot back at -8 under par, both players repeated yesterdays score of -4 under par 67.
Shane Lowry, Robert Karlsson and Bradley Dredge are all tied in fifth place with -7 under par.
Shane reported he could have done better, he could only manage -2 under 69 today, which included a bogey, and a three putt;
“I’m pretty happy, the two par fives on the back nine, I had two little pitches and didn’t make birdie which was a bit annoying and I had a bad three-putt on the par three where I made bogey.”
“I could have been a few shots better but I’m in a good position going into the weekend and looking forward to it.”
Best round of the day went to Robert Rock, -6 under 65, and T13, while tournament host Ian Poulter must be finding hosting hard work, he carded -1 under 71, to be back at -4 under par for the tournament.
