CRANS-SUR-SIERRE, Switzerland – Julien Quesne of France shot a 6-under 65 Friday for a one-stroke lead in the fog-shortened second round of the European Masters.
Quesne finished with four straight birdies to lead at 9 under. Danny Willett of England shot a second straight 67 to trail the leader.
Fog delayed the start at the Crans-sur-Sierre club, and poor visibility ended play with two groups still to finish their rounds.
Paul Lawrie of Scotland, the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 30, was another stroke back in third. His 66 included dropped shots at two par-3s on the back nine.
Frenchman Gregory Bourdy followed his tournament-leading 63 Thursday with a 75 to trail Quesne by five strokes.
Colin Montgomerie shot 68, two strokes inside the projected cut.
Robert Dinwiddie shot a 5-under 66 on Friday to share the lead with Tjaart van der Walt of South Africa after the second round of the European Tour’s Najeti Hotels Open. Read More
