Bjorn takes second round lead
Last updated: 11th November 2012
With the second round of the Barclays Singapore Open eventually completed on Saturday, it is Thomas Björn who leads the way.
Inclement weather has wrecked havoc with the tournament schedule and meant that most players only completed their second rounds on Saturday.
When all the totals were tallied, it was Björn on nine-under who headed the field by two shots.
The experienced campaigner didn't drop a shot as he nailed three birdies in a round of 67 to add to his opening 66.
"This course can very quickly bite you, especially if you don't drive the ball well," said Björn. "The numbers can run up on this golf course, so you've got to stay with what you're doing.
"I've enjoyed these two days, and it's nice to play some good stuff but there's still a long way to go in this golf tournament.
"I've got two good rounds in the bank but there's a way to go."
South African George Coetzee and England's Chris Wood head the chasing pack, with both men shooting low rounds to rocket up the leaderboard.
Coetzee notched up a run of five straight birdies from the 18th - his ninth hole - to card a 63, the low round of the week.
Wood also enjoyed a strong run on the closing holes, birding four of his last five holes to post a 65.
A further shot back is Francesco Molinari, while Adam Scott and joint-overnight leader Simon Dyson are four strokes adrift on five-under.
Thai Chapchai Nirat, who shared the lead with Dyson, birdied the first but lost his rhythm and recorded three bogeys and two double bogeys to drop back to four-under.
Rory McIlroy, who needs a top-three finish to clinch the European order of merit, is seven shots back after his second consecutive round of 70.
"The course is not easy but especially having to go out and come back in. It's a been a bit of a frustrating few days," said McIlroy.
"Obviously it would be nice to play a nice stretch of golf and not have to stop and start all the time but that's just the way it is and I have to deal with it, but I'm pretty pleased with my two under."
