Four share early China lead

European Tour

Latest news from the Volvo China Open is that Jeppe Huldahl is the second round’s early pacesetter and is sharing the lead.

Jeppe Huldahl was the early pacesetter in Friday’s the second round of the Volvo China Open, the Dane climbing into a share of the clubhouse lead with a 7-under 65.

That took him to a 12-under 132 for the first 36 holes and put him into a four-way tie for the lead with Frenchman Gregory Havret (66), Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts (67 and Keith Horne (69), who earlier in the day, had completed his final four holes in the suspended first round with a stunning 63 and the first round lead at 8-under.

Sergio Garcia, looking this season to fight his way out of his recent slump and get back among the game’s front runners in the World Rankings, added a 67 to his first round 66 to be just a shot off the pace in a three-way tie that included Robert-Jan Derksen of the Netherlands and Fredrik Andersson-Hed of Sweden.

Chang-won Han, the 19-year-old star and clubhouse leader at the Luxehills International Country Club on Thursday at the time play was suspended through bad light, was only 10-under at this stage, but with nine holes still to play, the talented youngster, a former Asian Amateur champion, was just two shots off the pace ands in easy reach of the second round lead on a course with not too many teeth.
