|Day two report
Todd Clements and Hugo Leon share a three-stroke lead on 13 under par after the second round of the British Challenge Presented by Modest! Golf Management at The Belfry Hotel & Resort.
The Englishman took advantage of his early morning tee time to post a four under par round of 68 and set the target, while 36-year-old Leon birdied the last to join Clements on 13 under par and move three strokes clear of Portugal’s Ricardo Gouveia, who sits second on ten under par.
Clements went into the second round with the outright lead following a sublime nine under par opening round of 63 and despite an indifferent start to day two, recovered well to finish strongly and maintain a foothold at the top of the leaderboard.
“I had a bit of a shaky start this morning but coming here with a 68, I obviously played great,” he said. “I’m enjoying it, I’ve got my caddie here, one of my best mates, that makes it really enjoyable. I had a late finish yesterday and then the early start, it feels like it comes quickly, and my game feels like it’s in good shape.
“I feel like I made a few silly mistakes with some of those bogeys but to come back with birdies makes it a little bit easier with the par fives behind.
“We’ve got 36 holes and hopefully being at the top, in contention over the weekend, that’s what we practice for, what we play for and I’m just here to enjoy myself and see where the weekend takes me.”
