The Welsh have made their mark after two rounds of the BEKO Classic 2012, with Rhys Enoch sitting as overnight leader at -7, closely followed by fellow countryman and Round 1 leader, Simon Edwards, as well as host of the United Kingdom’s top players.
Enoch’s second 18 started a little more subdued than yesterday’s birdie frenzy across the front-nine, but today reversed his fortunes by shooting a five-under back nine in stark contrast to his first round three-over par closing nine holes.
Birdies on fourteen and fifteen and a sensational eagle 3 on the par-five seventeenth hole means Enoch sits pretty at the top of the leaderboard entering the final day of play.
Round 1 leader, Simon Edwards, continued to show good form carding a solid level par 72 to remain at six-under for the tournament and second place heading into Round 3.
But hot the heels of both Enoch and Edwards is another pair of United Kingdom players – Englishman Andrew Butterfield’s fantastic five-under par 67 for round two, together with a solid level-par first round sets him at tied third with Scotsman Michael Stewart whose steady play earned him a second round one-under 71 to lie two back from the lead.
Ties for fifth place from Jamie Little (England), a previous winner of the BEKO Classic, and another Welshman in the form of Garry Houston mean that six players lie within three shots of Enoch – a recipe for a stunning final day of play tomorrow across Cornelia Golf Club’s Kings Course.
