Colsaerts leads by one shot
Nicolas Colsaerts opened a narrow one-shot lead at the top of the European Tour BMW Masters on Friday.
Colsaerts added an eight-under 64 to his first round 66 to take his overall score to 14-under at the halfway mark of the tournament.
The Belgian told the European Tour website that he was happy to be back in his best form and in the running to win.
“I felt like I’ve been in the zone a couple of times lately and it doesn’t really happen in such a short period of time like this,” said Colsaerts.
“So it’s pretty nice when you can get it going like this and I’ve been playing quite well for the last couple of months.
“I’m comfortable being back here now. I’m quite happy being here and playing the way I am capable of.”
Colsaerts shot five birdies and an eagle on the front nine and four on the back nine to set the lowest score of the round.
Earlier this month the 31-year-old missed out on winning the Portugal Masters by just three shots, finishing second behind France’s Alexander Levy.
Levy currently trails in second place on 13-under after he added a 66 to his first round 65.
His compatriot Romain Wattel is third on 11-under after he shot a 67, while three players are tied for fourth on ten-under.
South African Brandon Grace and Germany’s Marcel Siem both carded 66 on Friday, while Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo shot a 68.
