Boyd and Gonnet one clear in China
Gary Boyd is on course for his first European Tour title after a second round 67 gave him a share of the lead at the Volvo China Open.
The Englishman suffered an early bogey at the 12th after starting on the back nine, a hole he had eagled on Thursday, but recovered magnificently with a birdie at the 18th, before gaining five more shots on the way home. The 25-year-old, who carded 66 in the first round, has now improved to 11-under-par for the tournament to share the halfway lead with France's Jean-Baptiste Gonnet, who also carded six birdies and one bogey. South Africa's Branden Grace enjoyed a flawless round of 67, including an eagle two at the seventh hole, to lie clear in third at -10, one shot clear of defending champion Nicolas Colsaerts who remains in contention in fourth place at nine-under-par. One shot further adrift is a group of four, including Korean Jin-ho Choi, Spain's Ignacio Garrido, and the Australian duo of Marcus Fraser and Gareth Paddison.
