Stenson leads the board despite late bogeys
Saturday 25 June 2011
Henrik Stenson bogeyed his last two holes but still had the joint lead of the BMW International Open, alongside South African George Coetzee, after the second round in Munich yesterday.
The former Ryder Cup player had gone three clear with a chip-in eagle at the long sixth – his 15th – and a tap-in birdie on the next, but missed the green at the short eighth and hit his approach to the 557-yard ninth into the ditch.
Taking six there meant only a 70 to add to his sparkling opening 64 for a halfway total of 134, 10 under par.
"It's never fun to finish with two bogeys, but you gain some, you lose some," said the Swede. "I'm in a good position and I'm feeling very good."
Coetzee went in the water on the sixth but recovered to shoot 67. Others who had a good day were Scot Paul Lawrie, Dutchman Tim Sluiter and Welshman Bradley Dredge, in with a 66. Colin Montgomerie shot 72.
