David repeated his first round score of -6 under par, 65, only this time he was bogey free and included an Eagle at  the par 5 twelfth hole. He is also the only player from the top seven from the first round who shared the lead, to stay at the top. David said it felt good to repeat the back to back 65's; “It was really good to follow up a round of 65, I caught fire early on the back nine, sharing the lead on twelve under, so all in all really good. I’m trying to get back into the top 50. to try and get a Masters invite again next year.” Sharing the top spot with David on -12 under par are Paul Waring and Hennie Otto. Playing in the same group Paul and Hennie recorded 14 birdies and one Eagle between them. Paul carded a flawless -8 under par 63 and Hennie collected one bogey in his -7 under par 64. Paul enjoyed the beautiful weather; "I think the lovely weather's had a bit of a hand in it. I played nice, kept control of my golf ball well, hit it close a few times and holed a few putts. I've been playing better for the last few months. I lost by one in Valencia, two in Gleneagles, been knocking on the door a few times so it's nice to keep myself in contention week on week. If I can get into one of these big four events (the inaugural Final Series) at the end of the season that would be great. I am not going to put too much pressure on myself, I've had a medical exemption all year so it's nice to get back into a proper category for next year." Hennie said it had been a tough time getting inside the top 110 qualifying mark for The Race To Dubai, he is now in 97th place; " It’s been a tough last four months for me and my family so I’ve worked hard on my game and it’s about time it kicked through." Bernd Wiesberger and Chris Doak are tied in fourth place, just one shot back at -11 under par, and both players are still bogey free. Chris was happy to be bogey free; "I'm very pleased, especially bogey-free for two rounds, anybody will take that. It's a job well done. The mind tends to race so I am just trying to relax and when you are you relaxed you can execute the shots properly and that's what I have done the last two days." Justin Walters and Alvaro Quiros are a further shot back at -10 under par. It is still a very tightly compacted leaderboard, tomorrow is moving day, we will see if anyone can break free of the pack.
