Hanefeld holds on to lead

Kirk Hanefeld has a one-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Gosling's Invitational.

Hanefeld, who won the tournament in 2009, carded a second successive four-under-par 66 at Belmont Hills Golf Club to move to eight-under for the tournament.

Close behind is Danny King, who shot the low round yesterday, racking up seven birdies in a five-under 65 leaving him alone in second place.

Brian Morris, who was tied for the lead at the start of the day, had a tough time in the more challenging conditions and slipped to one over, after his five-over round of 75.

Hanefeld and King have opened up a gap on the rest of the field, with Kenny Leach in third on four-under, and there is a five-way tie for fourth at three-under with a group that includes Billy Walsh, another past champion, and perennial contender Brian McCann.

The opening two rounds have not been kind to Bermuda's professionals, with Dwayne Pearman best placed at one-under after his second round 69. Camiko Smith is also one-over for the tournament, carding a second round, two-under, 68.

Smith's score was helped by his eagle at 14, when he holed out from 100 yards at the par-4.

In the small senior professional division, Donny Jarvis sits at two-over and with a comfortable four shot lead over John Brott following his one-over round of 71 yesterday. John Rushnell is third at nine-over.

Among the amateurs, Mark Phillips, has a three shot lead at eight-over after his second successive round of 74, with Mike Hubbs, from Canada, at 11-over after he followed up his opening round of 73 with a 78. Neil Higgins is three shots further back in third.
