Marcus Fraser moves ahead at the Rio Olympics, leading at the half way stage in Brasil.
Marcus shot a second round-2 under par 69 to maintain his position at the top of the Rio Olympics leaderboard at -10 under, and will take a one stroke lead into the third round, and said he is doing something right;
“Any time you get to play with Stenson on the weekend, you know you’re doing something right.”
“Those guys have completely different games and bigger games to what I have but, at the end of the day, we play 72 holes and we hit a certain amount of shots on each hole.”
“There’s more than one way to skin a cat.”
“We play a game, I think the best game in the world, and it will be good fun out there with those guys.”
Thomas Pieters holds second place, one shot back at -9 under par, he carded a second round -5 under par 66 to move up the leaderboard and towards his dream;
“If you don’t dream about it, you’re never going to achieve it.”
“I am thinking about it but you kind of put that beside you when you’re playing and try to shoot the lowest you can.”
“What’s not to be happy about, played well. I started out really well, I think that was the key to my round in the worst of the conditions.”
“I knew coming to the finish there’s some birdie opportunities and to take all three was a good finish.”
Henrik Stenson is a further shot back at -8 under par, -3 under 68 today keeping him in touch with the leaders, with two rounds to go.
Henrik was playing smooth easy golf, he sunk a par putt from 108 feet, the longest successful putt of his career;
“You’re just standing there, praying for a two-putt bogey, before I know it, it found the bottom of the cup.”
“That’s the longest putt I’ve made in my career. First of all, it’s hard to get a putt that long on any green in the world.”
Justin Rose and Grégory Bourdy both had -2 under rounds of 69 today and share fourth spot on -6 under par for the tournament.
