Pulheim. Sweden’s Henrik Stenson showed once again on
day dual of a BMW International Open (23rd to 26th Jun during GC Gut
Lärchenhof) because he is one of a biggest stars of a international
golf scene. A bogey-free turn of 65 (-7) saw him pull turn with
overnight personality Raphaël Jacquelin of France. Thailand’s Kiradech
Aphibarnrat also constructed a gorgeous turn of golf to stand 13 places.
These 3 are tied during a tip of a leaderboard on -11 during the
median indicate of a tournament.

Stenson, who won a BMW International Open behind in 2006, will go
into a weekend packed with certainty following a joint
second-lowest turn of a day. Only Aphibarnrat und Benjamin Hebert
(FRA, -3) outdid a universe series 7 on Friday, with an eight-under
turn of 64. Stenson is well-placed to pull for a BMW International
Open double, and was understandably in a certain mood. “I was never
unequivocally in difficulty today,” pronounced a 40-year-old. we strike many of the
fairways, and many of a greens. we could have been closer on a couple
of them, though fervour is a terrible thing.”

Behind a 3 leaders, a horde of large names have played themselves
into row forward of a weekend. Denmark’s Thorbjørn Olesen (-10)
rocketed into third place with his second unbroken turn of 67,
followed by Zander Lombard (RSA) one shot behind on -9.

Sergio García (-5) gave German fans something special to hearten on the
eleventh hole: a renouned Spaniard strike a hole-in-one from 157 yards
to win an disdainful hotel document from corporate partner Hilton. This
was a second ace of a tournament: Scot Richie Ramsay (-2) had
formerly won a BMW M760Li xDrive on a 16th.

Bernd Ritthammer (-4) leads a ten-strong German fortuitous during the
iconic European Tour event. The 29-year-old carded 4 birdies and
one spook on Friday – a outcome that seemed to warn even him a
little: “My prolonged diversion was not as good as yesterday, though my putting was
most better. It is indeed utterly humorous that we came divided with a -3
currently and usually -1 yesterday. we feel right during home here. we compliment
BMW on a good organisation. we might not have played a Major yet, but
we can't suppose it removing most improved than this.”

Ritthammer is assimilated in a margin for a remaining dual days of the
contest by pledge Jeremy Paul (-2) and a gifted Alex Cejka
(-1). In pointy contrast, a BMW International Open has come to a
beforehand finish for a series of obvious players, including Masters
champion Danny Willett (ENG, Par), BMW Golfsport Ambassador Max
Kieffer (GER, Par), Miguel Ángel Jiménez (ESP, Par), Wu Ashun (CHN,
+1), Nicolas Colsaerts (BEL, +1), and internal favourite Marcel Siem (+11).
