Eddie shot a second round -3 under 69 to take a three shot lead into the week-end at the British Masters with a -8 under par 36 hole total, good putting helping him along;
“It’s a great spot, I felt very comfortable.”
“Frankly I feel like I’m not hitting the ball that well, really. I feel like there’s a lot more for me in terms of that department.”
“Clearly I’ve putted well and I’ve thought my short game has been good. I’ve hung in there in tough conditions over 36 holes.”
“I’m hoping to spend a little bit of time on the range and I’m hoping this weekend for my swing to feel a little more comfortable and then I can play some shots and take even more to the golf course because I’m pretty happy with where the rest of the game is at.”
Sharing second place at -5 under for the tournament are Matt Wallace, England, even par 72 today and Julien Guerrier, France, with his second round incomplete, play having been suspended for the second day in a row due to darkness, Julien is at -3 under through fifteen holes of his second round.
Jordan Smith, England, has fourth place to himself at -4 under par, with a -3 under 69 today.
