Christiaan carded a second round -7 under 65 to lead the Made in Denmark event by two shots at -13 under par for his 36 holes, a new driver giving some confidence, and distance off the tee;
“It’s been great to feel some confidence coming back into my game and hopefully I can keep going from here because I have some work to do to keep my European Tour card.”
“If I keep playing the way I have been for the last few days then I am hopeful that I can get the results.
“I have actually been playing well but either just missing cuts or not making good progress at the weekend to kick on and get better results but hopefully this good play will continue from here.”
“I made a driver change last week as I was struggling with the driver and that has been all the difference.”
Johnathan Thomson, -3 under 69 today, and Lee Westwood, -7 under 65, both from England, are tied on second place with -11 under par totals.
Ryder Cup Vice Captain Lee will not be playing at Le Golf National, he is leaving that to the youngsters;
“It was good today, it’s a golf course that I really like.”
“It’s not a case of pulling driver on every hole. Well you can if you want to but you need to be patient and strategic out there and I have done that well for the first two days and played really well.”
“I think it’ll take more than that for me to get a pick, our team is strong with so many good young players that they don’t need me.”
Jonathan, or Jigger as the rookie is known on the Tour is happy to be playing well;
“I had a good few opportunities out there, played some good golf but had some scrappy stuff in there as well but thankfully I managed to get out of there and I’m happy with where I am.”
“I’m in a brilliant position heading into the weekend. I just have to go out there tomorrow and be me. I have been in this position once before but I am just going to take it all my stride and just enjoy it.”
