Rory had a quiet round today, -1 under par 71 while Francesco carded -6 under 66, for them to be tied at the top of the BMW PGA Championship at -13 under par.

Rory admitted to scrambling today;

“I’m looking forward to tomorrow, I’ll need to play better than what I played today.”

“I scrambled well for the most part. I was four under for the last 12 holes in this wind, which was pretty good, but it wasn’t the calibre of golf that I played yesterday.”

“I need to start hitting more quality shots and put the ball in play and if I can do that then tomorrow is a big day.”

“Francesco obviously played a good round today and a few guys played a good round.”

“We have a little bit of a cushion compared to the rest and it’s not quite a two-horse race but I think if we both get off to good starts tomorrow, it could turn into that.”

Francesco loves the West Course, and hopes to join the ranks of Italian winners here;

“I just love playing here, clearly it suits my eye and I just enjoy the atmosphere.”

“The crowds are always great. It is a challenging course but I think if you hit good shots, you can make a few birdies here and there. I love it and hopefully it will be another good day tomorrow.”

“It would be amazing to win a Rolex Series event. To win here with such tradition and it’s a course that is in the heart of Italian golfers as well, with Constantino (Rocca) and Matteo (Manassero) winning here in the past. I’ll see what I can do.”

Tied in third place, four shots back at -9 under par are defending champion Alex Noren, Sweden, -2 under 70 today, Branden Grace, South Africa, -3 under 69, then two players from England, Sam Horsfield, even par 70 today, with Ross Fisher, -4 under 68.
