Sweden's Eric Carlberg is still setting a blistering pace in the Challenge de Espana at Badajoz. He carded a second round 66 to race to 14-under-par 130 and seven shots clear of the field.

He is being chased by England's Carl Watts, who also returned 66 for 137, seven under par, while two Spaniards, Francis Valera and Sebastien de Miguel are on 138 after both went round in 68.

But Carlberg is the man to beat. After his two eagles in round one, he added another today plus four birdies to take his tally to three eagles and eight birdies in 36 holes.

Watts, who lost his card in 1999 after an injury-plagued season, went out in 32 with four birdies and added two more coming home. He already has two Challenge Tour victories to his name including the 1996 Russian Open, while he was pipped for a main tour title by Robert Karlsson in a playoff for the 1997 BMW International Open.

The halfway cut came at three-over-par 147, a figure Stuart Cage managed to match to survive, but Andrew Sherborne, another to lose his card last year, shot 77 for 148 to miss by one.
