Peter Mitchell shares the lead with Scotland's Dean Robertson on 135, seven under par, after a second-round 65 at the Chemapol Czech Open at Marianske Lazne, but the former world No 1 tennis player, Ivan Lendl, missed the cut after shooting a respectable five-over-par 76.

Lendl, playing in his first-ever PGA European Tour event at the invitation of the sponsors, was unhappy with his first-round 82 yesterday but yesterday's effort was far more satisfactory.

It left him on 158, 16 over par for the two rounds, but he said: "It was as good as I could expect after having a triple bogey seven at the third hole in both rounds. I have no regrets about playing here at all for it was a great experience for me.''
