Chris Paisley, England and Adrien Saddier, France, lead the BMW SA Open Championship after 36 holes at Glendower Golf Club in South Africa.
Chris was -7 under 65 today, while Adrien shot a bogey free -9 under 63, to both top the BMW SA Open Championship leaderboard at -13 under par for 36 holes, and they will take a commanding four shot advantage into the week-end.
Chris is looking to become the third Englishman in four years to win this event;
“At the moment it’s weird, I feel like I didn’t play amazing. I certainly hope that I can keep that trend going.”
“I can’t wait for the weekend. Obviously, I have never been in this position before, so tomorrow, I’m just going to go and play and do my best.”
Adrien was not aware he equaled the course record;
“I didn’t know I have a joint course record but it’s quite cool.”
“The finish was awesome, I started very well, it was quite slow but after I made three birdies in a row on 15, 16 and 17, it was quite good.”
“I’m excited for the weekend but there’s still 36 holes to play and we try to stay focused on the last two rounds.”
Jacques Kruyswijk, South Africa, holds third place at -9 under par, with a second round -5 under 67.
Defending champion Graeme Storm, England, missed the cut after finishing on one over par after 36 holes, but player and tournament host Ernie Els made the weekend with a -3 under par total for the tournament.
