James Morrison Leads Second Round At Wentworth, Luke Donald Trails By Four Strokes

James Morrison of England fires a 64 eight under to take the lead in the second round at Wentworth of the BMW PGA Championship.

The 27-year-old posted a cumulative total of 12 under in its second day of play.

World no. 2 Luke Donald, who carded a second round 68, and Scotland’s co-first-round leader David Drysdale (70) were both tied in the second spot.

On third slot Joint overnight leader Peter Lawrie of Ireland shot 71 for seven under alongside Spain’s Alvaro Quiros (70).

Followed by Justin Rose ended in a group six under after a round of 71 at Wentworth.

Morrison, the 2010 Madeira Open winner, made six birdies before rolling in a 30-foot putt for an eagle on the 18th and the second best 36-hole score in the tournament’s history.

Donald, bidding to return to world number one, dropped a shot at the first but made five birdies and an eagle in pursuit of Morrison.

“This is the biggest event on the European Tour. I am sure he will have some nerves and I will try and chase him down,” said Donald
