Storm takes halfway lead at KLM Open
HILVERSUM (Holland): Graeme Storm took a three-shot lead at the halfway stage of the European Tour’s KLM Open at Hilversum on Friday, following up his opening round of 63 with a 66.
The Englishman ended the day at 11-under, three clear of Scott Jamieson, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Peter Hanson.
Hanson was one of three European Ryder Cup players in the field and in contention. Nicolas Colsaerts shot 65 to reach five under, while Martin Kaymer - the winner here in 2010 - is a shot further back.
Although he is eager to secure a second European Tour title, Storm admits his primary focus remains securing a top-115 finish in The Race to Dubai after a disappointing season so far.
He currently lies 114th, with the closing stages of the season fast approaching.
“It is a big struggle missing so many cuts,” he said of his poor run of form. — AFP
