Grace takes four shot lead in South Africa

The lead is still four after the second round at the Volvo Golf Champions at Fancourt in South Africa – but it’s now the local man Branden Grace out in front rather than Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts who in all honesty had a bit of a shocker.

Grace, who was the last man into The European Tour’s winners-only event thanks to his victory at the Joburg Open last Sunday, shot 66 to reach 12 under par.

It was only last month 23 year old Grace was at The European Tour Qualifying School in Spain, but he came through that six-day ordeal in joint tenth place and has been in great form since.

Colsaerts, had a 76 – 12 more than his course record first round – to drop to joint fifth place.

Hopefully Colsaerts can go low tomorrow and put himself back into contention going into Sunday. He is a great talent and from a personal point of view would love to see him do well this season.
