Golf: Levy in control at European Open

Heavy early morning fog has disrupted the opening two rounds in Germany, but the delays do not appear to have affected Levy, who completed his first round on Friday morning, setting the clubhouse lead at nine-under-par.
The Frenchman continued his good form during his second round on Friday afternoon, finishing the day on 17-under, although he will still have one hole left to play on Saturday morning, as bad light brought the day's action to an end.

The 26-year-old, who has been struggling with a wrist injury over the summer, admits that he has enjoyed the opening two days at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach, and he is delighted to be in such a strong position heading into the weekend.
"It was really good," he said. "I said this morning that I just wanted to have fun and enjoy and play my golf. That is what I did today and now it's really nice. I enjoy the time with my caddie on the golf course. I played well and it is always good to be in a position like that."
Home-favourite Martin Kaymer is one of three players six shots off the pace on 11-under and he also has one hole left to play of his second round, while the other two players in a tie for second, Ross Fisher and Robert Karlsson, have three holes left of their round.
