Schwartzel takes lead in South Africa
Charl Schwartzel will take a one-shot lead into the weekend after firing a bogey-free 63 on day two of the South African Open.
The 2011 Masters champion is looking for a first win since 2016 and made six birdies and a spectacular eagle over the Bushwillow course at Randpark to get to 12 under.
Zambian Madalitso Muthiya was at 11 under, a shot clear of 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen, fellow South African Zander Lombard and America’s Kurt Kitayama.
For Gavin Moynihan a second round 69 was an improvement on his opening 75 but still a long way off what he needed to make the cut as he finished at two over par while Neil O’Briain also improved to a 69 but also missed the cut at three over.
