RSS

2009 European TourSON SERVERA, Balearic Islands – Pelle Edberg of Sweden shot a 6-under 64 in bad weather Friday to share the second-round lead of the Mallorca Open with James Kingston of South Africa.

Edberg had seven birdies and a bogey in a round that was disrupted by lightning, while Kingston shot a 70 for a 5-under total of 135.

On a day of heavy rain and cold winds, Edberg was on the final fairway when a storm halted play for more than an hour.

The Swede said: “I didn’t expect 64, but I played really well tee-to-green and gave myself opportunities.”

Three players were three shots back: the Spanish duo of Alejandro Canizares and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Stuart Manley of Wales.
