Matthew Fitzpatrick from England, goes low to lead the Nordea Masters after 36 holes at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club in Sweden.
Matthew shot a bogey free second round -7 under par 65 to take the 36 hole lead in the Nordea Masters a -11 under par total, and a three shot lead going into the week-end.
Matthew was happy to collect seven birdies and no bogey’s, and thinks his form is improving, to follow up his stunning rookie campaign in 2015;
“I’ve struggled for a bit of form so far this year, but this week has been much more like it. Hopefully I can keep it going.”
“Any time you shoot seven birdies it’s always a good day, and when you manage to keep the bogeys off the card at the same time, it’s an even better day.”
“I hit one or two poor shots but you’re always going to do that. I putted really well today, I holed virtually everything so it was just one of those days.”
“Any time you go into the weekend high on the leaderboard, you’re going to get excited.”
Tied in second place at -8 under par are local favourite Alexander Björk, -4 under par 68 today, Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts, -6 under 66, two Englishmen, Ross Fisher, -4 under 68, and Andrew Beef Johnston, -3 under 69, with Scotland’s Scott Henry, also -3 under 69.
