MADRID (AP) — Sergio Garcia shot a 5-under 67 and David Drysdale had a 65 to share a one-shot lead after the second round of the Madrid Masters on Friday.
Garcia and Drysdale were at 13-under 131 at the Centro Nacional de Golf course.
The Spaniard birdied four of his first six holes after the turn, while the Scot hit an eagle at the last hole.
“I didn’t hit the ball as well as yesterday, which was a shame,” said Garcia, who is still searching for his first victory of the season. “There were about four putts that I should have made … but overall I’m happy with the round.”
Italy’s Emmanuele Canonica (65), Ross McGowan (66) of England and Ireland’s Gary Murphy (65) were at 132 and another three players were at 11 under.
Canonica hit the shot of the day at the par-5 fifth, nearly holing his second for an albatross. He settled for an eagle.
Defending champion Charl Schwartzel (69) of South Africa was the last player to make the cut at 4 under.
