It's extremely cramped at the top of the leaderboard in the Omega European Masters at picturesque Crans-sur-Sierre in Switzerland. Two tied at the top and five sharing third place and another five tied at eighth spot. Defending Champion Thomas Bjørn / Getty Images Thomas Bjørn, the defending Champion at Crans-sur-Sierre is tied at the top of the leaderboard with Stephen Gallacher, at -10 under par. It was a strange day where several players claimed the outright lead, but were unable to hold on to it. At the conclusion of the second round Thomas and Stephen were the proud leaders. Thomas declared that he was happy with his steady, but unspectacular play; “I played better today, At the end, it was not the prettiest but I played alright and just kept my patience. I told myself not to make any stupid bogeys this week because everybody’s going to do that. I made one down the last, which is the first one, but it is just one of those things. I am happy with how I am playing, I played steady without being spectacular.” Stephen is also happy to be in the number one spot; " First place is not bad, I’m happy with that. It gives me something to work on over the weekend." Miguel Angel Jiménez is one of those players tied in third place at -9 under par, he stated that he was upset at making another error on the 18th, but patience is the key; " I feel comfortable here, I’ve been coming for 25 years and I love to come here. That’s it. You need some fortune on the golf course but you need to think where you are going to place the ball because the greens are hard. I enjoy it here. You have to stay patient. We are still learning after so many years on the Tour that patience is the key. You get your reward. I’m still learning on the 18th that I cannot play for distance. Every year, through the back, through the back. I’m still learning. We will see tomorrow!" Standing alongside Miguel on -9 under par are a trio of Englishmen, Tommy Fleetwood, Richard Finch and Danny Willett, they are joined by Frenchman Victor Dubuisson. Danny recording the best round of the day, a -9 under par 64, which propelled him up the leaderboard. Yesterday's first round leader Anirban Lahri had a very quiet second round of even par 71, but is still only two shots off the lead, in the group at -8 under par. Tomorrow is moving day, it will be interesting to see if anyone can separate themselves from the field and take a good advantage into the final round. At the moment there are twelve players within two shots of the leaders at the top of the scoreboard. Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club, it does look nice, doesn't it.
