Jamie Donaldson, from Wales, leads the Nordea Masters going into the weekend at Barsebäck Golf & Country Club in Sweden.
Jamie carded a second consecutive round of -4 under par 69 to take the half-way lead in the Nordea Masters, at -8 under par, and will also take a two shot lead into the week-end.
He said that better chipping and putting had set up the good rounds;
“I played nicely, there were times when the ball wasn’t where I wanted it to be, but I made some great escapes.”
“The chipping and putting has been better over the last couple of days.”
“I have been playing quite nicely recently but just not quite putting it all together but the first couple of days here, I’ve been able to do that.”
“More of the same for the weekend, really. I’ve got my map of the golf course and how to play it. I don’t know what the weather is going to do tomorrow, it might be windy, it might not, so we’ll wake up and take it from there.”
Renato Paratore, from Italy, is in second place at -6 under par, a second round -1 under 72 keeping him in touch of the leader, but he did start the day as joint overnight leader.
Three players are tied in third place at -5 under par, Graeme Storm, -5 under 68 today, and Max Orrin, even par 73 today, both from England. They are joined on that total by Benjamin Herbert, France, who scored -2 under 71 in his second round.
