Lefty makes cut despite rough finish


SINGAPORE – Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain shot a scorching 10-under 61 to jump to a three-shot lead after the second round of the Singapore Open early Saturday.

Fernandez-Castano made nine birdies and one eagle to bolt ahead of James Morrison of England and Edoardo Molinari of Italy, who both had 68s to be tied at 12 under.

The 31-year-old Fernandez-Castano, who has won four European Tour titles, is 15-under 127 through two rounds.

Phil Mickelson had a 67 and Ernie Els a 66 to be at 4 under while Graeme McDowell’s 71 put him at 3 under, making the cut on that number. Mickelson finished his round by making a double bogey on the final hole.

The second round was completed Saturday because the threat of lightning from a rain storm delayed play for nearly three hours Friday.

The third round was to begin later Saturday.
