Danny Willett joins Scott Hend and Y.E. Yang at the top of the BMW PGA Championship leaderboard after 36 holes at Wentworth Golf Club.
Danny, with a second round -4 under par 68, has joined Scott Hend, -3 under 69 and Y.E. Yang, also -3 under 69, at the top of the BMW PGA Championship scoreboard with -10 under par totals, at the 36 hole stage of the competition.
Danny was hoping for more out of his back nine, but in the end was satisfied with a birdie at the last;
“It was still not quite the back nine I was hoping for but ten under par, you’d have taken it at the beginning of the day.”
“I played great most of the day and then chucked a couple of horrid shots in there.”
“I had a slow walk from 17 to 18 to try and gather my thoughts and after hitting two lovely shots into the last I came off with a slightly better taste in my mouth.”
“You could have just chucked it and finished really poorly, but to make birdie on the last was good and shows a little bit of mental strength.”
Scott struggle with his swing, but also rescued his round with a great Eagle putt on the last;
“I’d been struggling all day to get the ball over the center of the club, get it around as best I can.”
“Came up 18, hit a nice little sliding driver down there and sort of chunked a six iron not as good as I’d like to hit it.”
“I was in between six and seven and I took a six and caught it a little bit thick.”
“But it was nicely on the green and knew I had a quick putt, so just hit the putt where I thought it could go and rolled all the way.”
“It was quite nice and a good result considering I was floundering coming down the last few holes and put a positive spin going into the weekend.”
Jaco Van Zyl is in fourth place on his own at -9 under par, he carded a second round -4 under par 68.
