US Open champ Kaymer misses the cut in Cologne
Question of the Day
COLOGNE, Germany (AP) - Four players share the overnight lead from the second round of the BMW International Open, while U.S. Open winner Martin Kaymer failed to make the 4-under cut on Friday.
Local favorite Kaymer had three bogeys and a double bogey in a 1-over 73 that included four birdies. He finished on level par 144 overall.
Pablo Larrazabal made nine birdies - including five in a row - for a 9-under 63, matching the best round so far. The Spaniard is on 12 under overall with overnight leaders Danny Willett of England and Rafa Cabrera-Bello of Spain.
“I played great today, I played great yesterday,” Larrazabal said.
Emiliano Grillo of Argentina later carded his second successive 66 to join the leaders.
Cabrera-Bello double hit for his first missed shot of the week on the par-5 seventh but made five birdies while Willett, the 2012 tournament winner, stayed bogey-free to match his Spanish playing partner’s 4-under 68.
“I was a little unlucky coming down the last few holes but, overall, pleased with the minus four,” Cabrera-Bello said.
Andy Sullivan was level with the leaders with seven holes to play when play was suspended for almost 90 minutes due to a heavy storm. The Englishman dropped a shot on the par-5 No. 3 once play resumed and finished with a double bogey to finish on 9 under, three off the pace.
Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez, Scotland’s Craig Lee, South Africa’s Branden Grace, Germany’s Alex Cejka, Denmark’s Andreas Harto, Sweden’s Robert Karlsson were tied in fifth place, two shots behind the leaders.
Paul Waring shot seven birdies and an eagle to complete a 63. The Englishman was in an eight-way tie for 11th on 9 under.
Second-ranked Henrik Stenson finished 4 under with four birdies and the Swede is among a group of 10 players on 8 under overall.
