Fitzpatrick and Edberg share halfway lead in Czech Masters

Matthew Fitzpatrick and Pelle Edberg share the lead at the halfway stage of the D+D Real Czech Masters.

The pair opened with 66s at Albatross Golf Club and again fired matching scores on Friday with a pair of 67s getting them to 11-under.

Fitzpatrick, who is yet to card a bogey this week, recorded three birdies and an eagle in his second round while Edberg managed six birdies and a single dropped shot in his second round.

Earlier in the day Belgian youngster Thomas Pieters had signed for 68 to claim the early clubhouse lead and currently sits one shot off the pace on 10-under.

Thorbjorn Olesen, Sam Hutsby and Robert Dinwiddie are tied for fourth on eight-under, while Eddie Pepperell and Michael Hoey are all a further stroke behind.

There was also some history made on the outskirts of Prague as Vitek Novak and Filip Mruzek became the first Czech players to make the cut at a European Tour event since 1994.

However, it was a disapproving day for the likes of Peter Hanson, Anders Hansen and James Morrison, who all missed the one-under cut mark and as a result will have the weekend off.
