A brilliant round of 64 gave Peter Hanson a two shot advantage over Rory McIlroy after round two of the BMW Masters in Shanghai.
McIlroy really did look in good touch as he started to get into a nice groove on the back nine and really did turn the style on, but could not match the brilliance of his Ryder Cup team mate.
Overnight leader Jamie Donaldson teed it up in the second round four shots clear after his course record 62 but failed to capitalise with a disappointing 74 leaving him six shots back.
World number one McIlroy carded seven birdies for his 65 which got him to 12 under par and Hanson hit nine birdies leaving him at 14 under par.
It should be an exciting weekend ahead, all the top players are lurking waiting to make their move but for me McIlroy looks calm and in control, I think it will take something special to beat him come Sunday.
