Porsche European Open Bryson Dechambeau holds lead after impressive first round

Adjust Comment Print

Bryson DeChambeau didn't have his best golf in the second round of the $2.3 million Porsche European Open. Austrian Matthias Schwab fired a 67 to sit just one stroke adrift, alongside England's Richard McEvoy, who eagled the 18th hole to reach nine-under.

Dodt birdied seven times, while Hend birdied five times in the first round.

Nick Cullen will also play the weekend after making the cut on the number at even par, Jack Munro and Harrison Endycott both four outside the number.

At the top of the leaderboard DeChambeau was again at less than his best but managed his game well and was pleased to birdie the last to maintain his one shot cushion. "I didn't have my best stuff", DeChambeau told the European Tour's official website.

"The wind made playing pretty tough out there and I was fortunate enough to hit it in the right spots, miss it in the right spots, get a couple of lucky breaks and take advantage of them when I needed to".

"The two birdies on the last two definitely made it feel a little better but I still feel there's a lot to be had out there on that golf course with just a minor tweak to the golf swing", Reed said.

DeChambeau will need to be at his best over the weekend with Reed looking risky in his second round.

"I hit half the greens yesterday and I missed three today", said Reed in his post-round interview.

"I felt like I could go into attack mode and attack some flags and my putter's working. When my putter gets going I'm able to make some birdies".

The Masters champion bounced back from a close-range bogey at the sixth to pick up a shot at the next and drain a 25-foot birdie on his final hole to set the initial clubhouse target.
