Fisher Leads After 2 Rounds At Alfred Dunhill
Ross Fisher shot a 68 at St Andrews that included 7 Birdies to finish at -11 and take a 1 shot lead into round 3 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Fisher, 35, started Friday 1 shot behind Noren, birdied his second hole to hit the top of the leader board, made birdies on 5, 7 and 8 to be 2 in front, bogey on 11, birdie on 12, bogey on 13, birdies on 14, 16 and finished bogey par for his 68. Fisher said: “To shoot four under and get to -11, I’m obviously very, very pleased.”
Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren also shot 68 today and is 1 shot behind at -10. Swede Alex Noren, overnight leader was at Kingsbarns and made his first birdie at 3, double-bogeyed 5, holed his 80 yard approach for eagle at 6, dropped 1 at 11, birdied 13, 14 and 16, and bogeyed 17 and 18 to shoot 71 and finish 1 shot behind at -9.
Lagergren, 24, started on 10 at Kingsbarns, hitting the turn in 35,  made eagle at 3, birdie on 9 to shoot 68 to add to his 66, and said: “I played really solid today. Unfortunately I didn’t hole any putts this round.”
Jbe Kruger is at -8 after posting his second consecutive 68, with England’s Tyrrell Hatton fifth on -7. Joachim B. Hansen, Ulrich Van Den Berg, Marc Warren, Richard Sterne, Thomas Pieters and Marc Ford are the group at -6.
Bernd Wiesberg shot a superb 66 today that puts him in the group of players at -5 together with Martin Kaymer who shot 68 today.
Adrian Otaegui and Frank Quattrone continue to lead the team competition by 1 shot and are at -21 with Thomas Pieters and Johann Rupert having the best team score today of -12.
Nicolas Colsaerts’ averaging driving distance at St. Andrews today was 340.5 yards, now that is impressive.
With 60 players under par and 18 players within 6 shots of the leader there will be some serious golf on Saturday to get in position for the final round. Really looking forward to Round 3.
