Sam Horsfield was literally lost for words after his maiden European Tour win.
The Englishman saw a commanding lead cut after a stuttering back nine.
Horsfield fired an eagle and seven birdies in a second round of 63 at the Forest of Arden to share the halfway lead with Sebastian Garcia Rodriguez.
The Italian could become the first player to win a European Tour event without dropping a shot since 1995.
Horsfield’s fellow Englishman Jack Senior also enjoyed a surge through the field thanks to a 63 which included a hole-in-one.
