Casey continues to lead the way

Paul Casey was again the inspirational leader as Britain and Ireland moved to one stroke off the lead early in the second round of their world amateur team title defence in Berlin yesterday.

Paul Casey was again the inspirational leader as Britain and Ireland moved to one stroke off the lead early in the second round of their world amateur team title defence in Berlin yesterday.

Casey, whose opening six-under-par 66 had given him the individual lead, added further birdies at the first and fifth. With Welshman Jamie Donaldson - round in 80 yesterday as he struggled with food poisoning - grabbing birdies as well at the second and third and Luke Donald opening with a birdie four, Britain and Ireland were up to eight under par and joint second with Australia.

The United States reached 13 under, but Jeff Quinney triple-bogeyed the 14th after calling a penalty on himself when his ball moved, and David Eger bogeyed the last. They still set the clubhouse target of 423, but both Casey and company and the Australians were on the easier Arnold Palmer course.

World Amateur Team Championship (Berlin) Leading early second-round scores: 423 United States (D Eger 67 73, B Molder 69 71, J Quinney 71 72, B Curtis 71 73). 426 Australia (S Gardiner 70 71, A Webster 71 71, A Baddeley 72 71, B Lamb 72 72). 427 Canada (W Heffernan 69 72, D Gillespie 70 72, J Mills 68 76, C Kupeyan 72 77). 430 South Africa (D Lambert 69 73, J van der Merwe 69 74, J van Zyl 73 73, H Alberts 79 73).
