Larry Batchelor returned a six-under-par 66 to equal the course record at the Warwickshire yesterday in the second round of the British Professional Golf Tour Gosen Challenge. The Rochester and Cobham player was level with Devon's Roger Winchester on 139, two strokes behind the early leader, Cheshire's Andrew Sandywell. Sandywell set the record in Thursday's first round and shot one-under 71 yesterday for his seven-under 137 total. Batchelor hit level par to the turn, but birdied six holes on the back nine.

Scotland is to become the first country outside the United States to put information about its golf courses on to the Internet. A pounds 1m programme to be launched later this year will provide millions of golfers around the world with details of all the facilities available. Anyone accessing the Internet can study hole-by-hole graphics, book a tee-off time or lesson and inquire about hotels and places to visit.
