Andy carded -10 under par 61 on day two of the Portugal Masters, to share top spot on the leaderboard with Marc, who had -6 under par 65, both players on-14 under par for the 36 holes.

Andy had been suffering with a cold putter of late, but not today;

“I knew I needed to go low today to get a beat on the leaders.”

“So to go out there and shoot that score is absolutely fantastic. I had thoughts of 59 coming down the stretch there, but it wasn’t to be.”

“It’s fantastic being on top of the leaderboard and giving myself a chance going into the weekend. The game’s felt good for a long time.”

“The putter’s just been a bit cold and today I just holed a couple of good putts out there just to get the momentum going. It only takes a couple of putts to go in and you start seeing it go in all the time.”

“More of the same for me. I know last year, I was aggressive the whole way around and I know I’ve got to be aggressive again.”

Marc was happy to be still in contention;

“I’m really pleased, it’s always tough to follow up a really good score like yesterday.”

“It was good, I tried to stay as patient as I possibly could out there and nice to finish with a three at the last.”

“I had a good finish at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, I feel as if a bit of pressure has come off and I can look forward and try to qualify for some events at the end of the year.”

“It’s a much nicer place to be playing your golf, as opposed to looking backwards all the time.”

Jens Fahbring, -7 under 64 today and Major winner Padraig Harrington, -8 under 63 are tied in third place at -13 under par, just one shot back.

Padraig had nine birdies, one bogey, with the round highlighted by a bladed chip-in on the 11th hole  and a 42-foot putt on the 16th green.
