England's Barnes to run for victory


England’s Jason Barnes shown nerves of steal to take The Solvenian Open lead after second round. He was 4 shots back of Scotland’s Scott Henry when he teed off this morning. The Englishman had a very good ending season last year and seemed to be still in this mood. He signed for 67, -4 today and will have a 2-shot-advantage beginning last round.

At second place tie, a group of 3 players: defending champion Spain’s Carlos Balmaseda, Italian Alberto Campanile and Scotland’s Scott Henry.

Henry had a bad day as far as putting is concerned. He only holed one birdy and last hole par 5. What a difference a day made… compared to wonderfull yesteray’s card. Spain’s Balmaseda is full of confidence and will be a serious pretender for victory.

Italy’s Alberto Campanile is in a brand new position. The 26 year old player from Torino has never been in such a great ranking before last round. He struggled a bit with his game last year and only made 3 cuts out of 16 tournaments on the Alps Tour. Italian golfers are surfing on the great results of Molinari brothers and Campanile could be the surprise of the week.

The cut if fixed at +3.
