Joburg Open: Scotland's Craig Lee in share of halfway lead

Craig Lee of Scotland has a share of the lead after the second round of the Joburg Open

Scotland's Craig Lee is tied for the lead with Edoardo Molinari at the halfway point of the Joburg Open.

Lee carded a four-under-par 67 on the Royal Johannesburg & Kensington club's West Course to move onto 11 under.

Italian Molinari shot a four under 68 on the East Course to join Lee at the top of the leaderboard.

"The goal was to not fall back and there's a strong field behind you, so it was important that I didn't slip back," said Lee.

England's David Horsey and George Coetzee of South Africa were a further shot back on 10 under.

Horsey carded a seven under 63 while Coetzee returned to the clubhouse with a 68.

First round co-leader Alistair Forsyth is among a group of seven players tied for fifth place at nine under par after carding a one under 70.

Three competitors who finish in the top 10 of this tournament, and are not already exempt, will qualify for the Open Championship, which takes place 17-20 July.
