Schwartzel takes lead in South Africa

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SPORTS -

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.
