Bertasio Nino of Italy has the half-way lead in the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course.
Bertasio signed for a bogey free second round -6 under par 65 to top the Portugal Masters leaderboard after the 36 holes, at -12 under par;
“I’m feeling good, the game’s really good. I had a bogey-free round today and it was very easy golf.”
“I just missed one green and I chipped it to one foot so I never really struggled to make pars and had a lot of looks at birdies and I made some and missed some so it was a very easy six under.”
“I’m really playing well, I’m hitting the ball well. It’s a very good golf course if you’re playing well because if you hit it well you’re going to do well.”
“I’m really happy with what me and (caddie) Rich are doing out there and we’re both looking forward to the weekend.”
Lucas Bjerregaard, Denmark, with a bogey free -6 under 65 today and Marc Warren of Scotland, -7 under 64, bogey free, share second place at -11 under par.
Defending Champion Padraig Harrington, Ireland, is four shots back at -8 under following his second round of -4 under par 67, and is in a good position going into the weekend to make a challenge.
