Guerrier leads at Celtic Manor, Fichardt fades

Home » Guerrier leads at Celtic Manor, Fichardt fades

Julien Guerrier will take a two-shot lead into the weekend after following up his opening 67 with a superb 68 on day two of the Cazoo Open.

The Frenchman made 5 birdies and two bogeys on Friday morning in addition to producing some spectacular par saves because the Twenty Ten Course at The Celtic Manor Resort offered a stern check as soon as once more.

Not one of the afternoon starters had been in a position to match Guerrier’s 36-hole complete of seven below par on the 2010 Ryder Cup venue, with Callum Shinkwin and American Johannes Veerman his nearest challengers on 5 below.

Englishman Shinkwin blended seven birdies with 4 bogeys in a powerful second-round 68, whereas Veerman holed his strategy shot on the 18th for a closing eagle to safe a 68 of his personal.

Jack Senior, Espen Kofstad, Marcus Armitage and Thomas Detry had been one other shot again on 4 below.

South Africa’s Darren Fichardt, who ended the primary spherical two photographs behind the co-leaders, plummeted to 54th after carding a second-round 77.

The most effective-placed South African going into the weekend is Haydn Porteous on two below (T11).
