Kristoffer Broberg of Sweden has the 36 hole lead in the Dutch Open at Bernardus Golf Course in The Netherlands.
Kris shot -8 under par 64, including one bogey, to lead the Dutch Open by one stroke at -12 under par for 36 holes, with a red hot putter;
“I am taking it one shot at a time, I have been struggling all year with injuries, so it is nice to be playing good again. It’s just golf, so taking it one shot at a time.”
“I was home for a month so saw an optician for my right eye and they saw something, so I have a contact lens on that eye so now I can see the putts on the line. I am rolling it pretty good so happy with it.”
“I played really well today. I like to shape the ball both ways and I like to putt around these greens, it’s a lot of feels and breaks but I am hitting the ball really close so that has been key.”
“It was ups and downs out there, I hit some bad shots and some really good shots but my putter is smoking hot, so I am playing some decent golf.”
Tied in second place at -11 under are; Thomas Detry, Belgium, -6 under 66 today, and Marcus Helligkilde of Denmark who also carded a second round -6 under 66.
Thomas likes this course and is comfortable playing on it;
“The course is in absolutely great shape, tight lies off the fairway and around the greens as well, so it’s beautiful and the greens are really good, so it is good preparation for Dunhill.”
“I think Kyle Phillips designed this golf course, he also did Kingsbarns, so it is a bit similar, and you definitely need to know your lines and I feel comfortable out here.”
“I have played the golf course a couple of times, I’m comfortable with my lines, I know where to hit it and not to miss and that is a big help.”
Marcus is playing just his second European Tour event;
“It was good, I like this course a lot because if you can hit it far from the tee you can carry some bunkers 270 metres out, so I have been fortunate to do that, so it has been nice.”
“We had no wind for the first seven holes, absolutely nothing, so it was really easy out there in the morning.”
“I do as I always do. I just try and have fun, stay in the process and do what I can control. I know I am going to be nervous because I am always nervous, but I am just going to have fun and enjoy the game of golf.”
