Justin Rose is just a shot behind leaders Martin Flores and Angel Cabrera after two rounds of the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, but it was Brendon de Jonge who made the headlines with a record-equalling round.

The Zimbabwean began the day dead last on the leaderboard after shooting 80 on Thursday but turned his form around in dramatic fashion 24 hours later, a ten under par 62 vaulting him up the standings and back to two under overall - seven shots off the joint leaders.

De Jonge's efforts saw him tie the Quail Hollow course record held by Rory McIlroy, whose final round 62 saw him to his first career US PGA Tour victory in this tournament in 2010.

"I wish I could go into every round with that kind of a mind set, but it's easier said than done," De Jonge, who made eight birdies and an eagle, said.

"As horrible as yesterday was, today was as nice. So this game gives you something and takes something away."

Argentinian veteran Cabrera led by one shot after a first round 66 and followed up with a 69 on Friday to ensure he kept his place at the top of the leaderboard.

Flores joined Cabrera at the top of the pile after adding a 68 to his opening 67, while England's Rose is also well in the mix, his second round 67 keeping him just a stroke off the leaders at eight under.
